The Karachi Kings side led by youngster Babar Azam lifted their maiden PSL title as the winners rode on their skipper Babar Azam’s unbeaten 63 off 49 balls to pursue down the target of 135 runs with eight balls to spare. Today we look to compare the prize money both Indian Premier League and Pakistan Super League received at the final.
When contrasted with PSL as far as prize money is concerned, the IPL is way ahead as the cash on offer is faltering. IPL is the most famous T20 and the best T20 league on the planet and probably has the best players from around the world carrying out their speciality in the competition. IPL 2020 was conducted completely in UAE this year due to the Covid pandemic whereas the Pakistan Super League playoffs were conducted in Pakistan itself after the latter stages got postponed in March.
PSL Lags Far Behind IPL In Prize Money Distribution
The winning team was granted prize cash of 5,00,000 USD (around Rs 3.72 crore) for lifting the PSL 2020 prize while Lahore Qalandars brought home a measure of 2,00,000 USD (around Rs 1.5 crore). But out and all when we compare the prize money of both the leagues there is a contrasting measure of the difference between the two which is why evident in the figures we’re about to see.
Contrasted with PSL victors Karachi Kings, who were granted around Rs 3.72 crore, IPL 2020 heroes Mumbai Indians stashed an incredible Rs 20 crore. Prior, in March this year, BCCI had chosen to divide the prize cash of Rs 20 crore to Rs 10 crore due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In any case, the choice was later turned around by the board.
Then again, Delhi Capitals brought home an amount of Rs 12.5 crore for completing as runners up in IPL 2020. They procured around Rs 11 crore more than the runners up of PSL 2020 – Lahore Qalandars. As we see the difference is quite contrasting since IPL attracts a lot of wealthy sponsors like Reliance JIO, Dream 11, CRED, Tata compared to PSL where the sponsors’ arent as financial wealthy as we see in the IPL.
