Former Pakistan Pacer Aaqib Javed Brutally Trolled After “Low-Quality Bowling” In IPL Remark | Cricket News


Former Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed has taken a dig at the Indian Premier League (IPL) while comparing it to the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The IPL boasts some of the biggest names in cricket from all around the globe, except Pakistan cricketers, and is considered by many as the best domestic competition in world cricket currently. However, the ex-Pakistan pacer is of the opinion that the PSL is “the most most interesting league in the world” because of the pitches used in the tournament. According to Aaqib Javed, there is only one type of cricket being played in the IPL due to flat surfaces and “low-quality bowling”.

“This [PSL] is the most interesting league in the world, if there are no interruptions due to Covid-19 or anything else, because of the nature of the pitches. For instance Lahore’s pitch has some support for the bowlers, whereas you see higher scores in Karachi,” Aaqib Javed was quoted as saying by on PTV Sports.

“On the other hand if you look at IPL, there is only one type of cricket being played there due to extremely flat surfaces and low-quality bowling,” he added.

The former cricketer’s quotes were also tweeted by a Pakistani journalist, following which Twitter blew up as fans called out Aaqib Javed for his “low-quality bowling” in IPL remark.

Since its first edition in 2008, the IPL has become the most attractive franchise-based cricket competition in the world and another Pakistan fast bowler — Wahab Riaz — had said that the two leagues cannot be compared as “IPL is on a different level”.

In an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan on YouTube in May, Wahab Riaz was asked to compare IPL and the PSL.


The 35-year-old stated that the IPL’s international recognition makes it the better than any other cricket league in the world.

“IPL is the kind of league, where all international cricketers come and play. First of all, you can’t compare IPL to PSL. IPL is on a different level. Their way of working; commitments, communication and drafting is totally different”, he said.
