PSL is the event in which we can see more solidarity among the nation. People from all over the country support different teams, but at the end, they say that it’s our national event so it doesn’t matter that who is the new king of the kingdom, but the thing which matters a lot is that it’s the victory of cricket, the victory of the nation.
It’s an event of that raw talent which needs to be explored, and that’s the real beauty of this event. Our soil is rich, and talent is in its roots. Many youngsters have God gifted talent to play cricket, but they don’t find a proper channel where they can exhibit their skills. PSL is the source, the channel which provides the opportunity to those players who want to get a statue at the national level to serve their beloved country with their talent given by the Almighty.
That is why PCB hosts many domestic events in which they judge the abilities of the players. Many academies are also helping PCB in finding the real talent. National Cricket Academy, Abdul Qadir international Cricket Academy, Rashid Latif Cricket Academy and many other academies are playing a vital role to uncover the coveted skills.
So the leading and most important purpose of PSL is the hunt for gems and to locate the abilities at their right place. Moreover, PSL is not merely an event. It’s a time to support our national heroes and back them with words and in the ground with the noises of whistles, claps and dance. Let’s celebrate it as it’s our national event. Let’s celebrate and show the world that we love cricket as it’s in our blood and it’s a game of gentlemen and for gentlemen. Being a strong nation we should go in grounds to support our teams and we should go to show that it’s not a game, it’s an event to be celebrated, it’s an event to be united and it’s an event to tell the world that we want to see cricket back on our national grounds. That is how living nations float on the surface of success and happiness.
