In the modern day, the world of cricket is being dominated by the T20 leagues that are played around the world. The market of the T20 leagues is mainly being led by the BCCI’s Indian Premier League (IPL).
The Indian Premier League (IPL) has played a immense role in the development of the Indian cricket. It has played role in unearthing some new star players who now dons the Indian team’s blue jersey.
And to improve their team’s performance, nowadays, many other top cricket playing countries are having a T20 cricket league of their own, whether it is Pakistan’s Pakistan Super League (PSL), or Australia’s Big Bash League (BBL) or West Indies’ Caribbean Premier League (CPL) or newly formed SA20 League in South Africa or even UAE’s International League T20 (ILT20).
Often comparison is made between two different leagues by the fans of their respective country’s T20 league. Mainly comparison is made between the fans of two arch-rival nations, India and Pakistan’s IPL and PSL.
Recently Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam on this comparison between different T20 leagues. During a interaction with his PSL team Peshawar Zalmi podcast, Babar Azam said that he prefers to actually watch the Australia’s Big Bash League over India’s IPL.
