Malan credits PSL for professional development
Dawid Malan has credited the franchise-based T20 tournament Pakistan Super League (PSL) for his professional development.
The English cricketer who is representing Islamabad United in the ongoing fifth edition of the competition, also showered the league with praises for its standard of play.
According to the 32-year-old, the PSL is “one of the strogest” in the current world of domestic T20 competitions, and added that one needed to be a quick learner to survive in this format of the game.
“My cricket has developed and this tournament taught me the lessons, I needed to play international cricket,” said Malan, who played 15 Tests, one ODI and 10 T20Is in the international level.
“This is one of the strongest leagues around. The quality of cricket is unbelievable and if you dont learn quickly enough you fall behind very quickly.”
Malan also expressed his delight over the fact that for the very first time the entirety of the PSL is happening in Pakistan.
“My experience so far is very positive. Security has been very fantastic and the way we have been looked after is unbelievable. From my side, I can only give positive feedback,” said Malan, 6th in the ICC T20I Batting Rankings.
Initiated five years ago in the year 2016 as Pakistan’s answer to the Indian Premier League (IPL), the PSL has seen most of its actions taken place in offshore venues like Dubai and Abu Dhabi. But now, in its fifth year, the PSL has truly become PSL, as it is now being fully played on Pakistani soil.
