Pakistanis love cricket. That’s one thing that’s established. Whenever there is a match going on, we absolutely lose our shit, and when Pakistan’s own Cricket league, Pakistan Super League, was announced fans of the sport rejoiced all over the country. Now that the second spell of the league is over, alliances are even stronger now.
In preparation for the next season of PSL, Lahore Qalandars held a talent hunt
Over 300,000 players registered themselves from all over the country out of which around 160,000 were selected to play for the 8 teams to play against each other in the tournament.
Over time, we’ve all developed affection and love for players and teams, whether local or international in the Pakistan Super League. When international players come and play on your own home ground, it’s another feeling of pride, altogether. And we’ve obviously got our allegiances, too.
And Grant Elliot danced to the beat of the dhol, while stealing everyone’s hearts
He’s definitely one of our favorite PSL-ers, especially after his iconic bat-drop for Lahore Qalandars.
Remember this bat drop?
And Danny Morrison is definitely one of our favorite commentators for cricket
So what happens when the two get together and shake a leg at the inaugural ceremony of the tournament? It results in the party we all wish we were invited to, as well
Look at Danny going crazy
And Grant giving us a good ol’ desi shimmy
Here it is from another angle
Besides, Grant is mad cute, but that’s a conversation for another day
Also, we can’t get over how skilled a dancer Danny Morrison really is
Literally putting us and our mehndi dances all to shame
Grant went full Lahori, screaming his team’s chant into the mic like it’s nobody’s business
And this is how the two made us feel
People also seemed to love these two men
These ppl are so loving.I really like Danny n other newzealanders.They are just awesome
