It’s pretty obvious that we can’t wait already.
For Pakistan Super League it wasn’t really of a tough task to become a staple in Pakistani cricket fans’ calendar. The turn of every New Year now serves as a reminder to another celebration of the biggest annual sporting extravaganza of the country.
It didn’t take so long for PSL to become the eye candy of Pakistanis, only three years into its inception and the PCB product has taken shape. New franchises are being introduced, fanbases are growing and most importantly the new talent is being cultivated. All under the flag of one festival called PAKISTAN SUPER LEAGUE.
PSL is Back – What else makes it so Super?
Now that the king is back we are overwhelmed about all the fun, excitement, screenings, and popcorn that we are going to load ourselves with throughout till the finale. It’s not the competition or money that makes this nation happy, it’s more about the cricket, the jamming sessions, the analyses in TV lounges and everything that we bond and party over.
Time to stock back the popcorns, drinks and snacks because live screenings over matches is the best thing about this annual cricket festival. Friends and families gather over a place and see matches on big screens enjoying every bit of it to the fullest.
Many auditoriums and parks all around the country host these screening events every year to gather the cricket crazies under one sky.
Social Media Fun
The league is like 4 hours away and PSL and #PSL18 and #Psl3 are already trending on social media. Memers and lamers, all are geared up with their masala to make this cricket mania more interesting… sometimes even insulting.

Literally if you picture anyone of us watching these power packed matches, we do it with eyes on TV and phones in hands, cuz couldn’t stop looking at them memes every second.
Annoying Ads between Matches
Accept it or not, these ads maybe annoying as heck but you literally enjoy roasting them on internet. Every year as a part of marketing gimmick, brands release new ads and PSL merchandise that blow the audience’s mind in their nail-biting matches only to get roasted later on!
Pre- and Post-match Analyses
Famous former players and commentators couldn’t get tired of reviewing every ball of the match. And kudos to our fathers and uncles, they just couldn’t get rid of believing every detail blindly.
They even get pointless sometime but who cares as long as it’s about fun and cricket.
And Finally the Matches in Home-Grounds
We have been waiting for this day since so long and finally cricket is coming to home. We just cannot explain the feeling in words when we heard about the semi-finals and final to be played in Lahore and Karachi respectively.
So get ready for PSL shirts online shopping, ticket booking and extra snacking, cause this time boys are going to do the ‘DIL SE JAAN LAGA DE’ thing real hard!
