Former England and IPL cricketer Owais Shah has advocated the Indian Premier League (IPL) as the biggest franchise cricket tournament in the world. IPL is indeed the biggest cricketing platform in the world. Besides the financial returns, it is a platform for youngsters to portray their talent. Young cricketers not only from India but from around the world play with and against the best players in the world.
The high-intensity games in IPL prepare the youngsters both physically and mentally to play cricket at the highest of levels. IPL has been the cornerstone behind developing a lot of Indian and overseas players and is the most followed league cricket tournament in the world.
Owais Shah Claims That IPL Is The Biggest Tournament In The World
“It’s probably the biggest tournament in the world, the most followed. If you look at countries like America, apparently that is the country where the IPL is followed the most outside of India. Then you throw in the financial rewards that are on offer for the players and when you put that together as a package, it is a great, great competition and that is what makes it so big. When you are involved in it, it is something that you do not experience anywhere else in the world” Owais Shah said as quoted by Sky Sports.
