Brad Hogg Compares IPL With PSL & Gave Them Similar Ratings, Gets Trolled Like Never Before

Indian Premier League (IPL) is undoubtedly one of the biggest sporting events of the world and Indians are pretty possessive about it as they are very passionate about cricket. Time and again, IPL has been compared with Pakistan Super League (PSL) despite the fact that the former is far ahead of the latter in terms of amount invested in the tournament, viewership, quality, etc.

IPL started in the year 2008 and it is 12 years old while PSL is just five years old, all the editions of cash-rich Indian league have been played in India except once when it was conducted in South Africa while this is the first time that PSL is going to be played completely in Pakistan.

Earlier, most of the matches of PSL were played in UAE and some matches were played in Pakistan because of the security concerns as overseas player didn’t want to play in a country which is famous for anti-social activities. The big names of the cricket world used to avoid going Pakistan; however this time, there is good news for PSL fans as popular cricketers such as Shane Watson, Jason Roy and others will be seen in this season of PSL.

In simple terms, IPL is much grander and bigger than PSL and Indian fans just can’t tolerate if any comparison is made between the two leagues and above all, if PSL is ranked similar to IPL. Recently former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg was asked by a Twitter user to rate IPL and PSL.

The tweet read, “Sir if u give points to cricket leagues Then how much for PSL and IPL”

In his reply, Brad Hogg gave 9 points out of 10 to both the leagues and mentioned his reasons for the same. He tweeted, “Both 9 out of 10. The PSL has been the most prevalent of late because it has bought the game back to Pakistan. The IPL has the most interest in viewership worldwide.”

Brad Hogg giving the same rating to both the leagues didn’t go well with the Indians. While Brad Hogg said that IPL has most interest in viewership globally, he rated PSL equivalent to IPL as it brought cricket back to Pakistan.

Keeping PSL on the same platform as IPL irked the Indian cricket fans and while some made fun of this, there were some who demanded to oust him from the commentary panel.
