Ever since its arrival in 2008, IPL has become only better and better with every passing year. It has attracted the attention of not only players across the world but also of numerous sponsors and broadcasters. It has inspired many other leagues as well, not only cricketing ones but also for various other sports.

One of the toughest competitors of the IPL has been Pakistan Super League (PSL). Both the leagues have been a learning curve for budding cricketers and a popular means of recreational activity for all the fans. These leagues have attracted the interests of many players, and the matches have often been very closely contested. On this note, let us take a look at the PSL teams and their IPL equivalents.

Islamabad United and Chennai Super Kings have been the most successful teams in their respective leagues. While CSK has won three of the 9 seasons, IU has won two of the three PSL titles. Both the teams have reached the playoffs of every season.

More importantly, both the teams have never possessed many superstars, but have shown the faith in their core. While CSK has always gone for MS Dhoni, Raina, Jadeja, and Bravo to build their core, IU has stuck with JP Duminy, Asif Ali and Samuel Badree. Unlike other teams who have been negatively impacted due to change of core every season, the key to their success has been the trust that they have shown on their players, even during tough times.
