Usman Khawja, the Australian cricketer, says if the Pakistan Super League (PSL) would be paying more, all international cricketers would be running to the nation to participate.
He says that no one wants to talk about how IPL pays extra cash, hence, players want to play there.
Usman Khawaja makes a bold claim about IPL
“Personally, if the PSL had as much money as the IPL there’s no doubt all the international players would be going there,” Khawaja told cricket.com.au.
“At the end of the day, people don’t want to talk about it but it’s all about cash. Cash is king. It’s the reason when at times there have been some red flags traveling to the subcontinent people have always pushed the barriers, the boundaries a little bit because everyone has a price.
Usman, a Pakistani-born, is excited to play in his homeland as he has been auction by Islamabad United. Notably, this is going to be the first time the player is featuring in the PSL.
“This might be a little blessing in disguise to play over there. I’d love to go over there and play.
“I’ve played in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh but I’ve never played in Pakistan where I was born and it’s something I would love to do, to go home to where it all began for myself, my family.”
Usman is happy to see the return of Cricket in Pakistan after the doors were entirely closed on them. He said that the PCB is struggling immensely to bring the game here letting foreigners from across the world join them.
“I love cricket returning to that region, too, because I think they’re doing some really, really good stuff over there, doing some really hard work to get people to come over there and play.
