Indian Premier League (IPL) is the most popular and toughest T20 cricket league in the world. Several top-level cricketers come together to create their impact. It’s a dream for so many youngsters to get selected in IPL. Over the years, the cash-rich league has also helped the players get financially stable.
Recently, a Pakistan journalist Afra Feroz Zake penned down a tweet to criticize the biggest T20 extravaganza in the world. In his tweet, he described how long the scheduling of IPL has made it a boring league. While PSL is an interesting league with short and crispy scheduling.
“Indian Premier League is such a damn long league likewise never ending train! 74 matches in #IPL2022 is enough to make any T20 league boring! Meanwhile, one major reason for Pakistan Super League (PSL) being successful is the short and crispy span of the tournament based on 34 matches“, Afra Feroz Zake tweeted.

Indian fans were quick to respond to this tweet from the Pakistani journalist. They trolled the Pakistan Super League (PSL) for a shortage of money by giving an example of the James Faulkner incident. Indian fans also reminded the journalists about the viewership and salaries given to players in IPL.
Here are some reactions:
Bsdk you have 34 games cuz you have 6 teams. You don't have more cuz nobody can afford a franchise
