Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018 has claimed the crown of being the best addition so far! Not only was the Karachi final a historic event, but the league has also beat other major T20 franchises in the best fielding category!
PSL overtook IPL in the stats, according to a report drafted by ESPNCricInfo, which compiled data from Cricket21.
The PSL third edition, which was held in between February and early March had 82% catches taken followed by IPL with 81%. KFC BBL and CPL 2018 followed with 76% and 72% respectively.
According to GEO, PSL fielding stats are well ahead of the BBL, where last season’s conversion rate was only 75.6%. The champions, Adelaide Strikers, were third-best with an 80% conversion rate.
The IPL, as of April 29, 2018, has seen 81% catch-conversion rate. The CPL 2017 edition had an overall conversion rate of only 72%.
The percentage is calculated on the base of the number of real catching opportunities and how many were actually caught and dropped. PSL 2018 was widely praised by the commentators and analysts for the impressive fielding and impressive catch success.
