Wahab Riaz says the quality of PSL bowlers is better than IPL
Pakistan left-arm pacer Wahab Riaz says the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is better than the Indian Premier League (IPL) in terms of the quality of bowlers. However, overall, there is no league to compare with the IPL.
Speaking on Cricket Pakistan’s YouTube channel, the left-arm pacer, however, gave the IPL a different height. According to him, PSL should not be compared with IPL for now. However, the 35-year-old pacer kept the PSL after the IPL in franchise-based tournaments.
The best players in the world as well as the main attraction of the IPL is the clang of money. The Pakistani pacer thinks that all these have highlighted the tournament as one of the best T20 leagues in the world. But then he said that PSL is the best in the world in terms of the quality of bowlers.
“The IPL is a league where the best players in the world come to play,” he said. You can’t compare PSL with IPL. I believe IPL has gone to another level. Their promise, the way they run, their player draft method is very different.
‘I don’t think any other tournament can be compared to IPL. But if there is talk of a tournament nearby, I will talk about PSL. The Pakistan League has already proved that.
‘The standard of bowlers (in PSL) is quite high. The kind of bowlers you will get in PSL you will not find in any other league, not even in IPL. That is why there are not many high scoring matches in PSL. PSL’s bowling attack is the best in the world.
