Pakistan’s premier domestic T20 competition recognized by the name of ‘Pakistan Super League (PSL)’ has achieved massive success despite running handicapped in the race of top T20 leagues of the world. While the lion’s share of the league is played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a part of it is organized in Pakistan.
With the frequency of games scheduled in Pakistan getting increased, a different flavor and dimension has been added to this much celebrated league. Even the foreign cricketers are keen to see PSL being fully played in Pakistan as Karachi Kings’ player Ravi Bopara recently recalled the last year experience of playing PSL games in Lahore.
The middle-order batsman was greatly impressed with the buzzing atmosphere of Lahore as he shared that the passion of fans was overwhelming to say the least. Furthermore, he highlighted the efforts of organizers to make the game happen as continuous rain played the role of a wet blanket.
“The energy in Lahore last year was amazing. I cannot forget how the fans welcomed us with open arms and all of them – young and old – had incredible passion for the game. I remember it rained a lot before our game against Zalmi and the organizers brought in helicopters to get the field ready. That is how much it meant to them,” said by the London born player.
