Franchise-based T20 leagues are a global hit across the globe.

Furthermore, Hogg also pointed out the difference between the two leagues. While the former Aussie cricketer praised PSL for bringing back the sport to the country, Hogg said that IPL has the most worldwide viewership.
“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,” read Hogg’s tweet, in reply to the fan’s query.
Meanwhile, amid the wake of coronavirus pandemic, both IPL and PSL were hit badly. While the PSL had to be cut short among fear related to the pandemic, at least 10 foreign players and coaching staff have left Pakistan midway, due to the deadly outbreak. IPL 2020 meanwhile, was due to start from March 29, although owing to the disease, India’s premier T20 league has been postponed until 15th April.
