Shoaib Malik has got a unique sense of humor. Some of Malik's cheeky comments in the presser and post-match interviews are hilarious. 

He is currently leading the newcomers of Pakistan Super League (PSL), Multan Sultans. His team has kicked-off well in the ongoing tournament at UAE. They defeated Peshawar Zalmi by 7 wickets in PSL 2018 opener on 22nd February.

But despite a brawny start to the season, Malik impressed the Twitteratis because of his pre-match chat at the toss. While naming his bowling line-up after winning the toss, the 36-year-old captain couldn't pronounce South African bowler Hardus Viljoen's name.

You can try biting your cheek to hold your giggles, but the video is as comical as it can be. "One very fast bowler from South Africa, I can't pronounce his name," said Malik.

Sultans had command over the game from the beginning. Mohammad Hafeez's 59 and a cameo by Darren Sammy (29 off 11 balls) ensured Zalmi a fighting total of 151/6. But, Mohammad Irfan's 2/19 in four overs were enough to stop Peshawar from scoring fluently.

The Malik-led Multan chased it comfortably inside their allotted 20 overs. It was a Man of the Match winning innings by former Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara (57) and a steady captain's innings by Shoaib Malik (42*) to seal the first game.
