The 2018 edition of the Indian Premier League came to a fitting end with the most consistent side of the season, the Chennai Super Kings, lifting the trophy. Now that the tournament is done and dusted, it is a good time to reflect back at how the things fared up in the 2018 edition of the popular T20 league. The IPL is often revered as the most popular T20 competition in the world.

With all due respect to all other T20 leagues, the players too, have often admitted that the IPL is the top most competition. On most occasions, there have been comparisons between the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and the IPL. Well, both tournaments are good and competitive in their own might.

It might not be very correct to judge the two competitions too soon. However, one can certainly pick the players’ performance as the parameters of judgment. For now, here we pick five players who proved to be match winners in the IPL 2018, but had a relatively quiet season in the PSL 2018.

Here are the 5 Players who failed in PSL 2018 but did well in IPL 2018:

English batsman Alex Hales comes with a big reputation in white ball cricket. He is a renowned hitter of the cricket ball. In the PSL 2018, he played for the Islamabad United. Hales could only muster 87 runs in the four matches that he played with a top score of 46. He did not look his usual self in the competition.

In the IPL 2018, Hales got his opportunity quite late in the season. In his very first game for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, he scored a crucial 45 against the Rajasthan Royals. He backed it up with another 45 against the Delhi Daredevils. Later, he scored a quick 37 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore as well.
