ISLAMABAD: Legendary batsman Javed Miandad feels the Pakistan Super League (PSL) should be held in Pakistan as in the years to come it can attract a lot of players once it is leashed.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to postpone the PSL which was planned to be held in January next year. There were reports that the PSL was planned to be held in the UAE.
Miandad talking to APP said the PSL should be played in Pakistan as it is our own league and to play it in UAE will not end the country’s drought of international cricket.
“At least the PCB should take the initiative and see how it goes in Pakistan. I am sure once the league starts it will attract a lot of foreign players who are retired or domestic players of other countries,” he pointed.
The former PCB Director General said we can get our domestic players interacted with the national team with the help of PSL which will boost their morale and give them the confidence of how to tackle and play with international players. “Our national players are no lesser than others and they can help boost the domestic players’ confidence,” he said.
Speaking about the Pak-Sri Lanka ODI and Test series, Miandad said the inconsistent performance of our national team leads them to lose matches. “We have always lacked consistency and it is the only thing if improved can tackle any team,” he said.
Miandad however feels it is difficult to predict the victor of the Pakistan-Sri Lanka ODI series saying cricket is a game of chance and anything can happen at the end of the day.
