Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram who has worked in both Indian Premier League and Pakistan Super League has said that the quality of bowling in PSL is lot better than IPL.
“From whatever I have seen in the PSL over the last few years I have asked a lot of foreign players about the difference between IPL and PSL, when it comes to bowling. They all have said that the quality of bowling in the PSL is much better,” Wasim Akram told Basit Ali during a YouTube chat.
“In all IPL teams, there is at least one bowler who can be attacked. According to the foreign players, the quality of bowling is a lot better than IPL, according to the foreign players, ” He said.
“If I have to name a few promising batsmen, youngsters who are doing well are Peshawar Zalmi’s Haider Ali and Multan Sultan’s Zeeshan Ashraf.”
Akram has worked with several PSL franchises, including Islamabad United, Karachi Kings and Karachi Kings over the years. He was also part of IPL as bowling coach of Kolkata Knight Riders until 2016.
“It’s not fair to compare PSL and IPL. PSL has just started, it’s just been 5 years since its inception. For the first time, it was held in Pakistan we came to know how big a tournament it is for Pakistan. PSL is the second biggest tournament in the World of T20 after IPL, “Akram said.
“IPL has matured. It’s completed 12 years and there is a lot more money involved in the IPL,” Akram said.
