4. It is More than a Game
The PSL is not just about cricket. It is something bigger than the game particularly in Pakistan where the standard of local T20 cricket is much lower than the rest of the world. Players drop more catches than they supposed to hold. Patience doesn’t seem to be a virtue of these cricketers and the fitness standards are worse than average.
5. It will take Pakistan cricket to Next Level
The involvement of foreign cricketers will make PSL far more interesting; not only will the bar be raised on the playing standards. But sharing dressing rooms with cricketers who have won matches for their country will give the youngsters a chance to learn from the masters.
6. It will boost the Financial Stability of cricketers

7. PSL will promote Pakistan as a Peace-loving Country
The league will showcase Pakistan as a peace-loving nation. Cricket is loved as much as it is in India. The delicate picture of the country will show the world that there is nothing wrong with Pakistan and also the first edition will be played in UAE. A successful PSL may drive cricket back to Pakistan. And yes, Pakistanis will at last have something new to be proud of as well.
8. PSL will be full of Entertainment as well
PSL will not only provide a series of thrilling matches but it will also prove to be a source of entertainment. The big names of the Pakistani TV and film industry will be there to cheer and support their favorite teams. Former iconic captains Wasim Akram and Ramiz Raja are already onboard as brand ambassadors and more former cricketers might join them soon with their combined experience. PSL will surely hit the opponents leagues for a six.
9. Rest to learn from Best
The world’s best players are ready to visit UAE and became a part of history from a Pakistani perspective. This will not only provide the local cricketers a chance to learn from the best players but it will also increase the current standards for them whenever they play the game at the domestic level.
