Umar Akmal gets roasted for goof-up while promoting PSL

March 11, 2019

NEW DELHI: Pakistan cricketer Umar Akmal, who has been out of international action for over 18 months now, was roasted by Twitterati on Sunday following his major goof-up while promoting the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on social media platforms.

While talking about Quetta Gladiators' PSL match, he had mistakenly referred to Pakistan's premier cricket league as IPL (Indian Premier League), media reports said.

Pakistan Super League (PSL) is slowly rolling into its final stage, just two more league matches to go before the knockout round kicks off. And also, after the first 26 matches were played in UAE, the tournament has now been shifted back to Karachi following last season's success. It was during the promotion of his team, Quetta Gladiators' first match in Karachi versus the Karachi Kings that Akmal made the big blunder.

"It is obvious that Quetta is in Karachi and we are playing at our home ground. How much ever the crowd supports, the team will play that much better. If the crowd continues to support us like this then the next IPL, sorry PSL, will be played here only," Akmal said.
