The Pakistan Super League (PSL) has been the talk of the town lately and the tournament is in full swing in the UAE.
Since the tournament has started, cricket fanatics from both sides of the border have been engaging in cricket banter on Twitter.
Pakistanis have been criticizing the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for beginning in Dubai and having the majority of the matches in the UAE.
But Why stands are empty in PSL even on Sunday…Better to organise in Pakistan only..how it is possible to run any event without earning?PCB should seriously think before next https://t.co/jAiJQTltP6 a cricket fan very disappointed…

Indians on Twitter have also started to notice that the stadiums have been pretty empty…
And have started trolling Pakistanis for the empty stadiums.

However, it wasn’t all bad. Many Indians had a lot of love for PSL and expressed it on Twitter.
Namaste ?? I specially came from Delhi, India to attend all PSL matches as IPL matches are boring and not worthy of the money and time unlike PSL matches which are fun to watch and totally worthy ???
