IPL XI vs PSL XI: A dream match-up
The PSL Season 3 concluded in a star-studded event at Karachi, where Cricket returned after almost a decade. While the Islamabad United were crowned as champions twice in 3 years, the league showcased a number of talents from Pakistan and overseas across all the teams that were a delight to watch. The focus of T20 Cricket fans will now move to India where the most lucrative T20 League of all- the Indian Premier League is set to commence from 7th April.
With the never-ending debate among the fans of both sides that which league is better, we have tried to make the best PSL XI and IPL XI and how would the players fare against each other if they are placed head to head and this is not the comparison.
#1 Luke Ronchi vs Chris Gayle
Luke Ronchi has been brilliant for Islamabad. Needless to say, he was one man who made a vital difference at the top of the order. Ronchi not only finished as the highest run-getter of PSL this season he also scored 4 quick-fire half centuries including the one in the final which made the modest target of 149 more of a cakewalk for Islamabad.
There cannot be a better guy to open for the IPL XI Team other than the Universe Boss, Chris Gayle. Surprisingly Gayle has ruled the T20 Leagues of all around the world except for PSL having gone unsold this year. However, in IPL, Gayle is at a different level altogether. There have been few in the T20 cricket who have made as big an impact as him. The Caribbean southpaw has deposited the balls 265 times in the stands making him top the list of most sixes. He also boasts of the fastest century of this format that came off only 30 balls thus making him the opener for this team.
