The current position that Mohammad Rizwan holds in the ICC rankings for T20I batters is number two. The 30-year-old has established himself as one of Pakistan’s most important batters over the course of the past few of years.
Now, Rizwan, who has played in various franchise Twenty20 competitions such as the Pakistan Super League, the Bangladesh Premier League, and the Big Bash League, has stated that the PSL is the most difficult cricket league in the world, exceeding even the Indian Premier League in terms of difficulty.
Mohammad Rizwan was quoted as saying something along these lines by Cricket Pakistan. “We used to say there is IPL; now, if you ask players who go back after playing here, they say that Pakistan has the toughest league in the world because even our reserve players sit on the bench,” Rizwan was quoted as saying.
“Everyone is aware, without a doubt, that PSL has stunned the entirety of the world. In the beginning, they predicted that it wouldn’t work, and they predicted that nothing would change. As players, we also came to the conclusion that it has established a strong reputation all around the world.”
Karachi, Multan, Rawalpindi, and Lahore are going to play host to the eighth season of the Pakistan Super League next year. The tournament is slated to take place from February 9 through March 19.
In the beginning of March, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Ramiz Raja, disclosed the earnings made by the board as well as the amount that each PSL franchise received while the competition was going on.
According to the former captain of Pakistan’s cricket team, the profit for the season skyrocketed to 71%, which is the most it has ever been for any competition in its whole history. In addition, he mentioned that each franchise earned PKR 900 million (Rs 38 crore).
“HBL PSL 7 profits jumped to 71 percent, the most in its history,” Ramiz Raja said in an official statement. “This was all before the first ball was even bowled in the tournament.” “Each franchise earned around PKR 900 million, again the most in HBL PSL’s history,” he added. “This was all before the first ball was even bowled in the tournament.”
Raja praised the supporters for their “huge” support in Karachi and Lahore, which served as the locations for the first and second phases of the event, respectively. He added that in all of his years as a professional, he had never witnessed such “lively and enthusiastic crowds.”
“The fact that we had incredible crowds in both Karachi and Lahore contributed significantly to the fantastic success of the seventh season of the HBL Pakistan Super League, which is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most successful tournaments in the history of the PSL.
Throughout the course of my professional experience, I have never witnessed crowds that were so energised, overwhelming, enthusiastic, vivacious, and supportive as those in Lahore “he added.
