Pakistan Cricket Board has successfully organized premier T20 domestic tournament in Rawalpindi which provided the opportunity to the residents of twin cities to embrace for cricketing thrills and spills as super stars of Pakistan cricket performed in front of crowded grounds.
Tournament was based on two phases, in first phase new teams were provided chance to play in the qualifying round and in second phase twelve teams contested for the trophy.
We should appreciate the efforts of the PCB to provide great entertainment for the crowd. Participation of people in great numbers also reflects the improved security situation in the country. We should also appreciate the sacrifices and efforts of our law enforcing agencies for eradicating the menace of terrorism.
PCB has also finalized preparations of Pakistan Super League and foreigner players have also been roped to participate in the event. It is indeed a great omen that domestic players of Pakistan would be benefited while playing and sharing the dug-out with great players of various countries.
Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo of West Indies are some of the prominent players among many others who will feature in the inaugural Pakistan Super League (PSL), a franchise-based T20 tournament to be held in Doha in February 2016.
People were demanding high voltage tournament of Pakistan in which they could also see starts of other countries. Eventually people would be able to see their dream come true.
PCB should also push for organizing final of the tournament inside Pakistan; either in Lahore or Karachi as security conditions are very satisfactory. We should also appreciate the role of former legendary cricketer of Sri Lanka Jausuriya who was in Pakistan and portrayed extremely encouraging image of Pakistan after visiting numerous cities. On the whole, it seems that Pakistan cricket is on the right track after the tug of war of previous chairmen’s of the board.
