It’s high time we put this IPL vs PSL comparison to rest especially when it comes from a perspective of a neutral person

Whether its cricket or any other matters you would always see India and Pakistan fans go against each other on microblogging site Twitter. If India wins, Pakistan fans have to bear the repercussion and vice versa happened if Pakistan wins against India. The reason is pretty simple as these two arch rivals don’t play often due to bad diplomatic relationship they share with each other.

The only time they play against each other is in ICC tournaments but you often come across comparison initiated by fans on both sides of border which include- Kohli vs Babar, Dhoni vs Rizwan and IPL vs PSL.

Many Pakistani fans thinks that PSL is the best league in the world due to quality of cricket on display but they often tend to forget that most world class players don’t play PSL and the two reasons behind this security issue post 2009 Lahore attack on Sri Lankan players and less salary.

They often tend to compare it with IPL as recently when Jason Roy who played in PSL for Quetta Gladiators was picked to play in the upcoming edition of IPL for Gujarat Titians at base price 2 crore INR have pulled out his name from IPL 2022 due to bubble fatigue many Pakistani fans latched on to this opportunity to trigger Indian fans on social media stating that he played the best league of the world i.e PSL and now he don’t want to play low tier league like IPL.

Before Indian fans could jump on and reply these Pakistani fans with swag it was perfectly summed up by Usman Khawaja who was born in Islamabad Pakistan and later move to Australia and playing cricket for Kangaroos is currently in Pakistan for Test series against Men in Green responded to a question asked by Journalist over quality of cricket in PSL to which he replied PSL is a good league especially there is a quality fast bowling on display and further added that IPL is the best league in the world where world top players compete against each other and it is the only league where Indian players take part and IPL make the world wait for them which silenced all those haters of IPL in Pakistan.

“Obviously, IPL is the strongest in the world. There’s not really a contest here (between PSL and the IPL), because at the end of the day, they have all the world come to them and it is the only league in the world to have Indian cricketers. So, it ends up becoming the best league in the world,” said Khawaja in the pre-match press conference ahead of the 1st Test match between Australia and Pakistan.

The 2022 edition of IPL will start from March 26th 2022 will end on 29th May 2022 where 10 teams will play against each other with addition of two new teams in form of Gujarat Titians and Lucknow Supergiants which will be played across Mumbai and Pune and based on latest report on different media outlets, 25 percent crowd will be allowed to witness the high pressure event.

The reply from Usman Khawaja who was born in Pakistan and later moved to Australia on IPL vs PSL comparison should put all comparison to rest but one thing I am pretty sure that these comparisons will never die down despite knowing the reality.
