Indian Premier League is one of the most glamorous and sought-after T20-based cricket leagues in the world. Every cricketer dreams to be a part of this league, to showcase his talent to the world. Many players from Pakistan too have expressed their desired to play in the IPL.
But due to the strained relations between India and Pakistan, the players from Pakistan have missed out in recent years. However, IPL can receive a serious booster if Pakistan cricketers start playing in the cash-rich league. The national team boasts a couple of serious talents who can walk into the playing XI of any franchises.
We take a look at some of the players from Pakistan who can feature in the Indian Premier League:
1. Babar Azam in Delhi Capitals
Babar Azam is surely one of the best T20 batsmen in the world and could attract a bidding war in the IPL auctions. Delhi Capitals are missing an experienced middle-order batsman who could glue their batting line up together so that the big hitters could play freely.
Ajinkya Rahane and Steve Smith were bought by the Delhi Capitals to do the job, but both of them haven’t looked anywhere close to their best in the Indian Premier League in the last few years. Babar Azam will be the ideal man for Delhi Capitals in this situation.
He has the experience to play in difficult situations and can score runs at a quicker rate whenever needed by the team.
