Another year, another Pakistan Super League comes to an end. An end filled with laughs, frustrations, tears, but most importantly immense and unexplainable pride.
Pakistan is cricket, and PSL 2018 was purely Pakistani cricket.
On the night of 25th March 2018, thousands flew in, and even more tuned in on TV, to watch the PSL final at the National Stadium in Karachi. And boy, did the night deliver! From the buzz of a stadium brought to life after 9 years, to the chants of the supporters of Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi, the excitement of the night was like nothing seen before.
The inaugural champions, Islamabad United beat the defending champions, Peshawar Zalmi. As soon as the dust of PSL had finally settled, our wonderful Pakistani awaam turned to Twitter to share their insights about the final, and we have never been more entertained.
Here take a look at some of the most memorable tweets from the night of PSL Final 2018:
People could not have been happier than to have live cricket back in Karachi
One guy even decided to look past the Karachi-Lahore feud to put out this sweet message
Someone was nice enough to point out how the PSL final was trending on worldwide twitter
A few were disappointed by the closing ceremony
This one guy felt the disappointment on an entirely different level
Some people couldn’t leave India out of it – and it was brutal
Some people couldn’t leave India out of it – and it was hilarious
Then there were the all too expected Kamran Akmal memes
There was also endless amount of love for these two shining spirits of PSL
More love for Mr. Darren Sammy
More love for Mr. Fawad Rana
There was some love and excitement for our foreign commentators too
This girl had her priorities straight the entire time
Some said it was a win for Pakistan. And it was.
And even though it was a real win for Islamabad, some funny fellows online couldn’t help but post these in their honour
Then there was this heart warming treat
Even Mr. Sheikh Rasheed had a good time
All in all, it was a month to be remembered. PSL 2018 was an extraordinary tournament, and one that was even more special than the ones past.
These guys have said it best
