We know that there have one kind of emulous attitude between India and Pakistan for every purpose where they have scope to compete each other. Though as like Pakistan & India cricket team there have more leading cricket nation but their people are more excited for a match between them. This is why a match between India Vs Pakistan is mentioned as the biggest cricket event of the earth. Not only in cricket but also in football, hockey and other category sports, surprisingly their performance level in same together which make their match more breathtaking. It’s need to mention that still they have little bit contradiction in border as well. Few years back, people around the world also heard a rumor after a regular interval that another Pak-India war going to happen. Though our discussion topic isn’t about India-Pak unstable circumstances but it’s 100% true that this situation is the created PSL Vs IPL argument.

Couple of Pakistani news & internet media already write down the opportunity of Pakistan Super League comparing with IPL. Even Pakistan cricket fans also started to raise their voice to popularize PSL over IPL. Their activity on cricket forums, social media and blogs mentioning that pak fans want to see PSL as the most successful twenty20 league than IPL and it will be a revenge for them as few years back BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) decided to give up all Pakistani cricketers from IPL. May be Indian cricket fans don’t care this issue still now and the acceptability of IPL around the cricket world giving them more confidence. This is why our team didn’t see any special activity/comments from their side.
