    Why pick Rashid Khan when you have enough good quality indian spinners?

    You can easily replace Saini then who seems to be the only player not at world class level. I donít know much about him but havenít seen him make a mark at international level yet which makes me think he doesnít have a pedigree right now.

    My Base XI

    Babar Azam
    Jason Roy (int)
    Haider Ali
    Mohammad Hafeez
    Moeen Ali (Int) (c)
    Kamran Akmal (WK)
    Imad Wasim
    Shadab Khan
    Wahab Riaz
    Sohail Tanvir

    My 3 extra players:

    12. Tom Banton
    13. Harris Rauf
    14. Umer Khan
    15. Ben Dunk (wk)

    I could go with the extra bat and drop a seamer or Spinner. Banton in, Shadab out or Hasnain out:

    Tom Banton (Int)
    Jason Roy (int)
    Babar Azam
    Haider Ali
    Mohammad Hafeez
    Moeen Ali (Int) (c)
    Kamran Akmal (WK)
    Imad Wasim
    12. Shadab Khan
    Wahab Riaz
    Sohail Tanvir
    12. Mohammad Hasnain

    In a 3 match series, I’m sure it could go 2-1 in favour of any IPL team or this PSL team with the final being played at 1-1

    By picking Banton and Roy, with Babar covering them at 3 and Hafeez also securing the side at 5...I’ve already nullified the threat of ANY international attack that the IPL will throw at this top 5, with Haider Ali being the only possible weak link. I’m expecting Banton and Roy to bravely take on Bumrah, Rabada and Boult. Or Bumrah, Shami, Rabada etc. I’m confident in my middle orders ability to handle the threat that will be posed by Chahal and possibly a left arm spinner like Axer Patel.

    My main concern is that my bowling although very skilled and competent may not be able to take wickets up front, and will rely heavily on wickets to be taken outside power play overs.

    I will look to win the Toss and bowl first every time, and back my side to chase down scores in the region of 180-210

    Now if Tom Banton may not yet be up to the task of handling the world’s best attacks due to inexperience and not a lack of talent, then I would consider replacing him all together with Alex Hales, who with Jason Roy can set platforms of 10 overs 110 for no loss at ease against any attack.

    This can be considered

    Itíll be better contest if a 16 member top pick PSL squad joins IPL as 9th team - donít see them making play-off - in fact after 16 games, finishing above 7th could be an achievement.

    This year, I thought Delhi is very good team and Hyderabad, Bangalore weaker team - today Sunrise defended ~160 against Delhi and RCB has won two out of three, including one against Mumbai....

    We have plenty of top order batters and they have done well, not many lower order players though.

    Rohit
    Rahul
    Agarwal
    Dhawan
    Gill
    Shaw
    Paddikal

    Out of these, only two will find a place in the current best IPL XI.

    This team surely looks stronger than CSK and maybe even SRH but that's not the point. Can this team beat the best IPL 11 ?

    To be honest I actually thought IPL team would be unbeatable but looking at that side they not strong as you claim and are beatable for sure.
    IPL has more international star players in their league so they have more in reserves and can choose from. But that team is not as strong as I first thought it would be. And can be beaten.

    I'm surprised no one is putting in the PSL team Andre Russell one of the best T20 players and even Pollard has a good shout he has hammered IPL bowlers so could make it.

    No team is unbeatable.

    If Zimbabwe can beat Australia in 2007 and Scotland can beat England in 2018 then definitely.....no team is unbreachable.

    The question is how likely ?

    But Zimbabwe and Scotland don't have a better H2H by a big margin against them so that's a one off.
    Pakistan have beaten India majority of the time. By some recent wins don't mean now if Pakistan win its a one off and fluke.

    Very likely that IPL team you mentioned can be beaten.

    How did India and Pakistan come into the discussion? We're talking about IPL and PSL teams. Stop being so insecure.....

    If you actually believe in that last sentence of yours , then I guess let's just agree to disagree.

    IPL has larger talent pool and the best international players to pick from. PSL is a great league but currently not really a match for IPL. A more interesting comparison would be PSL vs BBL/CPL/BPL/T20 Blast. I'm sure PSL is easily winning all of the other contests.

    Plenty of options at top order for Indian players. IPL will win. It will beat a lot of international T20 teams as well.

    All you need is Jason Roy to fire alongside Alex Hales/Babar Azam/ Tom Banton or any top order player and it will be enough to deal with any attack the IPL throws at you.

    It’s not necessarily a battle of the star weight of each team, rather it is more of a tactical war in which you need to smartly use your juggernauts to deal with the quality of the international bowlers that the IPL will throw at you.

    As I said, the way to go is to bat second and bowl to a plan in which you will back yourself to chase 9-10 an over.
