Depending which part of the world you’re from, the debate of which T20 League is the best will divide opinion. Ask people from Australia, they will say (some of them at least) that the BBL (Big Bash League) is the best.
The same with an Indian or a Pakistani. Talking of Pakistan, yesterday on 27th February, approximately at 6pm UK time, Lahore Qalandars were crowned champions of the Pakistani Super League for the very first time!
That’s the beauty with cricket and to be more precise franchise cricket, where in the case of the Qalandars, they lost to Multan Sultans in the first knock out game, but due to the nature of the format, they would get a second chance after dramatically defeating Islamabad United in the eliminator.
But now with the PSL over, what now cricket fans? Well, South Africa are (at the time of writing) in the process of forcing a win against World Test Champions New Zealand, as well as Sheffield Shield cricket.
Not enough? Well, there’s women World Cup cricket and in just five days Australia and Pakistan play a test series in Pakistan! How cool is that? Answer, very! Especially with Rawalpindi to be one of the venues too.
Sixteen long years, since The Baggy Green played in Pakistan, home to one of the most passionate vocal supporters in the world. Hang in there cricket fans, let’s find some cricket re-runs of T20’s and watch The Sports Buff’s Out In the Middle videos, to keep you going.
I have your back guys, you’re welcome.
