Danish Kaneria, a former Pakistan bowler who hasn’t played in either the PSL or the IPL, shared his opinion on the debate in a recent interview with IANS.
The former Pakistan cricketer complimented the IPL as a “professional” tournament that has helped India’s cricket team by producing a wealth of talent.
Because the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Pakistan Super League (PSL) are considered the top two franchise-level cricket leagues, there has long been a comparison between the two competitions.
‘Which is better, the PSL or the IPL?’ is a question that every player who has played in both leagues has heard, and more recently, another former Pakistan cricketer has weighed in on the subject.
Kaneria was questioned about his two favorite clubs in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League, which includes two new franchises.
“See, there are no favorites in the T20 format,” he explained. However, when it comes to team combinations, the Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians are excellent. This edition introduces two new teams, neither of which should be underestimated.
“The IPL is a tournament that all cricketers aspire to participate in. Many South African players, for example, took time off from their national team to compete in the IPL. As a result, this is becoming a major event every year”
‘The PCB’s Poor Approach Impacts The Chances Of Good Players’: Danish Kaneria
Danish Kaneria praised the IPL as a “professional” league that has created a lot of talent for the Indian cricket team. He did, however, believe that the “unprofessional” Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has consistently hampered the opportunities of players who have excelled in the PSL.
“Because it is such a professional tournament, the IPL is bringing in a lot of talent to Indian cricket.” And it’s getting better with each passing season, even though the PSL isn’t doing much for Pakistan cricket. If a player does well in the PSL, the Pakistan Cricket Board’s unethical stance impacts his prospects of making the national team,” Kaneria remarked.
IPL 2022 kicked off on March 26 at the Wankhede Stadium, and three exciting matches have already taken place.
