Sikandar Raza, IPL, PSL: Zimbabwe cricket team’s star all-rounder Sikandar Raza is busy playing ILT20 these days. The Dubai Capitals player talked about the 17th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) during the tournament. Regarding preparations for IPL 2024, Raza said that there is no better preparation than playing cricket. Raza was a part of Punjab Kings in the 16th season of IPL. During this period, he made important contributions with ball and bat.
Said this about preparation
Talking to the media, Raza said, "There is no better preparation than playing cricket. ILT20 is definitely a high standard league. I am going to play PSL from here. I am waiting for PSL. Before IPL, my preparation will be to play ILT20 and PSL. I mean, you can’t opt out of game time. I think this can be the best preparation before IPL."
Told why IPL is special
Raza said, "I just think the availability of all the players for a tournament makes IPL really special. In most of the matches we play, crowds come and support their teams. This is something which is different in IPL. The only league that comes close to IPL when it comes to crowds is PSL. So, I think IPL is definitely different because of some factors."
IPL is much better than PSL
The Zimbabwean player praised IPL highly and termed it the best franchise league tournament in world cricket. He also said that IPL is the biggest cricket league in the world and is much better than PSL. Raza said, "When it comes to PSL, IPL is the best league till date. This is much better than PSL. That’s what I’m trying to say, I’m not a fan of comparisons. But, it is. I think IPL is the biggest league on this planet."
