The fourth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) moved to Pakistan on March 9 after the first 26 matches were held in the United Arab Emirates.
In a bid to promote the event and draw the attention of his countrymen, Quetta Gladiators’ Umar Akmal released a video on social media. However, Akmal made a big goof-up in the clip as he mistakenly said IPL instead of PSL.
“Zaahir si baat hai Quetta ki team Karachi aayi hui hai aur hum apne home ground pe khel rahe hain, aur crowd jitna bhi support karega hamari team ko, team utna accha perform karegi. Aur sab teamo ko agar crowd isi tarah support karta rahega toh Insha Allah woh time dur nahi hai ki agla IPL sorry PSL yahan pe hoga,” the 28-year-old batsman said which translates into “Our team Quetta is here in Karachi and we are playing on our home ground. More the support from the crowd, better the team will perform. And if the crowd supports every team like this, the next IPL, sorry PSL will be held here.”
Here's the video:
As soon as the video went viral on social media, Twitterati bring their trolling game to roast the Pakistani batsman.
Here are some of the reactions:
Last four group matches in addition to the qualifiers and finals will be held in Karachi. Initially, three games were supposed to be played in Lahore while Karachi was slated to host five matches. However, considering the current political and military hostilities between Pakistan and India, all the matches have been shifted to Karachi.
