As the fourth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) comes home, here is a look at why Pakistan leg of the tournament holds significance for Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Possesses Star Power
This year’s games in Pakistan includes some big names in franchise cricket. These include Shane Watson, Rilee Rossouw, Dwayne Bravo, Fawad Ahmed, Luke Ronchi, Cameron Delport, Sikandar Raza, Ravi Bopara, Colin Munro, Colin Ingram, Liam Livingstone, Darren Sammy, Liam Dawson and Kieron Pollard.
Hence, the presence of so many overseas cricketers should make contests interesting. Also, the fact should allow a lot of fans in the country to see international stars in action on their own soil instead of television for a change.
Provides Rationale For PCB To Invite Boards That Matter
With likes of Shane Watson, Colin Ingram, Luke Ronchi and Colin Munro participating Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will really be hoping for a safe and a successful event. If things go well then the entire episode should go a long way in providing PCB with a rationale to invite prominent boards like Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Uplifts Country’s Image
Pakistan is in need of uplifting its overall image. A successful PSL then is almost bound to provide a boost to the country’s image at an international level and should challenge negative perspectives about Pakistan that revolve around globally.
