    The star value of IPL is much bigger than that of PSL in the sense that most of the big players from all around the globe play in the IPL.

    All the stats suggest that the IPL is bigger league than the PSL. But the PSL is only in it’s second season and will hope to get bigger and better with the years.

    Definite thing is that both IPL and PSL are great platform for the young and untapped players in their Countries. IPL has already proven this. There are many players in the current Indian squad who have had IPL origins. The biggest of them being Ravi Ashwin.
