    "There will be a time when PSL leaves the IPL behind" : Shahid Afridi

    Afridi was asked on a TV show about claims by Indian media and celebrities that his comments in relation to Kashmir were because he and other Pakistani players can't play in the IPL so this was his response.

    And he's being truthful. I also believe that there will come a time where PSL leaves IPL behind.

    Afridi believes IPL will help youngsters and other Pakistani players. This is different to saying Afridi wants to play in the IPL.

    Yeah, that's likely never happening unless Pakistan produce better cricketers (stars, young talent is decent) and sign the top T20 talent in the world.

    Not everything has to be measured. I believe it would be perceived by many as the better tournament. A tournament where the ballers actually have a say and where batsmen have to work really hard to get their runs against tough bowling line ups.

    PSL is going to continue to get better as it transitions to more games at home, and thus attracts more crowds. Also consecutive successful PSL finals in Pakistan, World XI tour, and the West Indies tour and more forthcoming tours will convince more players to come to Pakistan.

    PSL is a T20 tournament including players from the number 1 ranked T20 team in the world today. The quality of bowlers and youngsters coming through in the PSL I believe is what makes it the best T20 tournament in the world. It's more than just cricket, it's for a good cause, to bring cricket back home and I believe it's played with more passion than anywhere else.

    It’s all your opinion. Not a fact. IMO IPL, BBL and CPL are way better than PSL in terms of quality.

    Batsmen struggled to score runs doesn’t mean bowling was great.lol. Because batsmen were poor combined with slow pitches. Batsmen even struggled to scores against part timers like Sumit Patel.

    IMHO there is a huge gap between the quality of batting between PSL and IPL. Bowling was nothing extraordinary. Comparable with IPL tho. Fielding was surprisingly better than previous years. Overall not a bad tournament.

    But saying quality is better than IPL is not acceptable at all. Not even close.

    And I hope you understand what I am saying. Fact is Pakistan are number 1 ranked T20 team in the world. PSL, thus has players from the best team in the world today. Opinions of fans will vary, and In my opinion it's the best T20 tournament going around.

    Now if you think Afridi can't be serious about PSL leaving IPL behind one day, well if you think about the tournament transitioning to more games at home over the next 2 years (with the intention of holding the whole tournament in Pakistan), bigger crowds, and more players are likely to play if we continue to have these successful tours. So, I consider it plausible that Afridi expects that in time it could leave IPL behind.

    The facts are that Pakistan has not played the most formidable opponents in T20 in a while and that has ballooned their ranking in that format. Look at ODI and Test ranking that paints a truer picture of where our team stands compared to the rest of the world.

    PSL is playing a big part in helping Pakistan get back on it's feat to certain extent and helping discover and nurture the youth of our country and there is no doubt about that. The fact that our domestic players are getting a chance to mingle with International cricketers and coaches and learning all the new tricks of the trade on terms of how players are suppose to train, how to take care of their body, how much time are they suppose to spend in the nets working on certain aspect on of their game or their technique, how to correctly read and react to certain situations in a game and many other things of that nature.

    However, it is completely disillusion and a clear case of getting carried away when you start even comparing PSL to IPL. IPL currently spends close to 12 million USD per team so have the cream of the crop in the sport that shows up there to play. All the skills and tactics I mentioned above are operating on steroids in comparison to PSL with some of the brightest minds working behind the scenes for each team. IPL is doing great right now but it has the potential to grow even further with the expansion of more franchises just like the models used in NBA and NFL and the commissioners of those American Sports Leagues have already made numerous trips explaining the blue print to the organizers of IPL.

    Yes, PSL is doing great and I hope it does even better, but lets be honest and practical and not compare IPL like Afridi did in a jazbati moment.

    This is a weak argument.

    How many Tests/ODIs do Pakistan play compared to other top rank teams?

    The argument works both ways, in that Pakistan will drop rankings if not enough games are played in the relevant format. Other teams will surpass based number of games played only - attrition!

    The bowler quality became absent when the games were moved to faster pitches.

    Pakistan will not get a few good test batsmen until their domestic system is changed. Only platform that remains for youngsters is PSL.

    He played in 2008 (and was a disaster), registered for the auction in 2009 and in 2011 reminded everyone that Pakistan players have not played in IPL for 3 seasons.

    "For three seasons, including the current one, we haven't been a part of the IPL. We have no problems playing in India as we have just played a World Cup semi-final there," Afridi told PTI."

    The initial tweet by Afridi was not bad at all. Any good human being will care about life of innocent people. However not all that were killed were innocent. There were some 14 armed millitant who took up the weapon and chose their fate. In between the innocent people also die (I believe 4 civilians died), which is very upsetting.

    I don't care about millitants being dead since they have chosen the path but dying of civilians is worrisome. However most killed were millitants and army soldiers.

    The Kashmir issue can never be resolved by guns. It will just bring more dead bodies to Kashmiri families and Indian army men.

    They must follow UN procedures for the resolution. Pakistan need to vacate its army from Pakistan occupied Kashmir including GB and then India need to remove its armed forces and keep minimal army to carry a voting.

    Most Kashmiri sunni Muslims I have known and some of them I have taught as well, want a separate country. Shia and Gujjar people and Hindus want to stay with India.

    However this not playing in IPL thing, Shahid bhai is getting too emotional. He should just leave it here with the original single tweet.

    If you look at history, he oscillates between extremely positive about India and very negative. Recently there was a picture of him asking an Indian fan to hold the flag properly. Before that there was a comment on how Indians and Pakistanis share the same culture and then a comment about bigger hearts. Lala is a bit flaky like his cricket

    Poor guy. He was probably dragged by the Indian Army and forcibly made to play in IPL1. No wonder he couldn't play well and did squat for his team.

    IMHO there is a huge gap between the quality of batting between PSL and IPL. Bowling was nothing extraordinary. Comparable with IPL tho. Fielding was surprisingly better than previous years. Overall not a bad tournament.

    But saying quality is better than IPL is not acceptable at all. Not even close.
    Well, yes it is my opinion, and you have yours too. I guess it goes down to personal taste and which national team you support, since of course you will be more invested when you see your nation's favourite players and up and coming youngsters.

    I feel with the PSL, the focus is on cricket and the players are passionate about the game. Because there is so much money involved in the IPL in my opinion players are more passionate about the money than the game.

    Dwayne Bravo does the same for his country, forget PSL. He's only West Indian by birth, not by heart. If he can undermine his own country I'm sure the PSL doesn't even count anyways.

    We're speaking about his priorities. Both PSL and IPL are foreign leagues to him. He didn't even bother playing a single PSL match this year despite having a contract, and despite having all the time in the world. Why?

    I just did a quick calculation and pegged the figure at approx $4 mil - amount that Afridi has missed out on because of IPL's ban on pakistan players. Privately , he must have been seething with anger all these yrs for the lost moolah.

    In terms of huge noisy Crowds & Razzmatazz, the IPL will always lead the way.
    In terms of the actual Cricketing Entertainment; comparing the 2017 IPL and 2018 PSL.
    The 2018 PSL was much more exciting and entertaining in my opinion.
    The overwhelming emotion for the game in India is truly genuine, whereas the same cannot be said for Pakistan. It also seems as if it there is a 'Fake Passion Hype' drive throughout the Pakistan Media to get people on board after years of isolation.
    I feel there is a greater passion for Pakistan Cricket amongst UK & USA based Pakistanis than there currently is in Pakistan.


    Pakistan Cricket: Exciting, Entertaining, Unpredictable, Dangerous and Unique.

    Afridi's views are taken more seriously in India than in Pakistan I guess he was being honest when he talked about receiving more love in India than in Pak.

    I seriously don't care if PSL becomes the greatest league known to mankind. It will not deter players from playing in various leagues in the world. Having the best league et all is just for chest thumping that's all. Players playing in these leagues don't care about anything but money. Indian and Pakistan fringe players will have more to gain from these leagues as they would like to impress their franchise as well as the selectors but the established players are here only for money. Whichever way you look at it. None of these players have any affiliation or connection to the franchise's they represent.

    I can see your point but this is not strictly accurate. The psl is open to anybody but the Indian players tend to stick to only ipl. Plus there are about 20 elite players in the ipl but the rest are international fringe players playing alongside Indian current and fringe players. Yes money and exposure is a huge draw but profits for the franchises is the biggest marketing advert you can have.

    I think in time as the psl grows and becomes more profitable esp as more matches are played in pak which costs much less than UAE and has greater crowd attendance and attracts more advertising money it will inevitably attract the second tier of elite players competing alongside Pakistani players.

    Do not underestimate the importance of playing on foreign soils. All international players want to prove that they are adept at handling pressure situations in foreign conditions. Moreover the English lions specifically seek out training in uae and Sri Lanka just to equip their players with those extra skills required for subcontinent. But they lack the pressure and drama that T20 leagues demand.

    So take out the top elite 20 and the lowest rung of international trainees and you still are left with around 100 or so fringe players that will wish to experience the subcontinent and the PSL IN PAKISTAN as it gets safer will be a very attractive option.

    IPL has already been held in 3 countries. It was held in SA and UAE. In 2014 initial games were played in UAE before it moved to India. So IPL has already done that. IPL was also entirely conducted in SA in 2009.

    You guys have to get out of this mentality. For cricket to survive a strong Pakistan cricket establishment is necessary apart from other Asian blocs. We are happy if pakistan board gets richer and spends money on grassroots in Pakistan. But there has to be a reality check. Images of roofless stadiums suggest otherwise.

    Some of the posters really need to do research before posting, it misleads other posters. Roofless top you are talking about was becz stadium was under construction and as the roof wasnt completed in time for PSL final it looked like that. It wasnt like PCB didnt have money and workers left the work. Lol! Bro come on.

    Good on you Afridi, but given the fact that you turn up to collect your paycheck plying your trade in every god-forsaken league like that Switzerland league or T10 which what should have been an abomination to cricket.

    I highly doubt that you would say 'no' to IPL, where you might earn more in playing one season than playing a decade for PSL - but let's not get ahead of ourselves. When legends/potential legends like JOE ROOT, AMLA, Steve smith, Warner and PSL legends like luke ronchi, Ravi bopara, Kamran akmal are ignored what chances a player past his sell date like you have.

    But, since we Indians have big heart just like yourself even with all it's clandestinity, we will play along and enounce

    "Don't say so, you will be a big loss to IPL, champ. **"

    **if considered for selection that is.
