Pakistan has become successful in attracting international cricket to home through PSL
PSL 2020 is on full boom now. Once deprived of international cricket, a prominent Cricketing power Pakistan is going to have its League today.

Experts alarmed Pakistan that is not producing quality bowlers and batsmen recently. Pakistani circles blamed this situation to the absence of international cricket in Pakistan.

I was playing cricket first, and my cricket coach was the one that introduced me to track and field.
I have read about emerging players going to play in PSL, and I have chosen some names expected to become a member of the international team in the future. Thus, it would become a good case of how a country can enhance and support its sports through franchise leagues.
