The Pakistan Super League (PSL) was an overwhelming experience for players and fans alike as jam-packed stadiums greeted the enthralling encounters throughout the competition. Despite the tournament having been indefinitely postponed for now, the PSL is fresh in the memories of fans who got to see top-flight cricket in the country.
The most interesting aspect of the competition was the fact that Multan’s stadium was perhaps the noisiest out of all the four venues in Pakistan. Putting the metropolitan centers of Lahore and Karachi to shame, Multan’s zealous crowd turned up in numbers even on weekdays to make the occasion memorable.
Talking about the pleasant turnout in all of Multan’s home games, Multan Sultans bowling coach Azhar Mahmood mentioned the reception he received in the city reminded him of his time in the Indian Premier League with Kolkata Knight Riders.
"It was an incredible sight to see enthusiastic fans lining the streets of Multan as we travelled to the ground and back. I have only ever seen that once before and that was in India when I played for KKR in the IPL and never before in Pakistan,” Azhar said.
