Babar Azam, one of the world’s leading batsman, knocked a commanding half century to help the Karachi Kings win their first Pakistan Super League title with a five-wicket win over the Lahore Qalandars on Tuesday.
Azam smashed seven boundaries in his 49-ball 63, but it was skipper Imad Wasim who hit the winning boundary to help the Kings overhaul a modest 135-run target in 18.4 overs. Soon after the win, many took to Twitter and celebrate the much-deserved victory!
Celebrities such as Shahroz Sabzwari, Asim Azhar, Humayun Saeed and others took to social media and lauded the team over their first-ever PSL title. Here's how the stars reacted:
All hail the lions of @KarachiKingsARY! Congratulations, champions of #PSL5. Well-deserved win! What a photo finish match! Kept us on the edge throughout. @babarazam258–man on fire! Incredible performance. Your genius has set the bar high for future players. Atta boy!— Adnan Siddiqui (@adnanactor) November 17, 2020
The final – one of the most anticipated in the PSL’s short history, given the rivalry between Pakistan’s two biggest cities – failed to live up to the hype as Lahore managed just 134/7 after winning the toss and batting on a flat National Stadium pitch.
