Here's The Lowdown On All That Went On In Qaddafi Stadium For The PSL Final In Lahore

By Haadia Paracha | 5 Mar, 2017

Cricket finally came home, after years and years of pining. The match with Zimbabwe already had the ball rolling but the PSL final was a whirlwind of emotions. The anticipation was endless. With the most deserving teams of the PSL season coming forward, Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators won hearts through out the super league matches so it was only fitting that the best of the superfecta comes forward.

The opening ceremony was all sorts of ~FEELS~ as Qaddafi Stadium LIT UP.


The preparations took days of practice in the heart of zinda dilaan-e-Lahore.


Including the performances that were to set the stage ablaze.

The stakes were high as Darren Sammy openly made a #TrimmerLao reference in his Facebook live. 


The turnout was UNBELIEVABLE.

Are you watching this, world? This is the resilience we often speak of.


*Insert Lala appreciation tweet*

We’ll miss you, Boom Boom. Get better soon.


When the opening ceremony kicked off, men in uniform literally fell from the sky with parachutes.

Which made people all sorts of emotional.

There was also a show of solidarity with the men in uniform by lauding their efforts. Many of the soldiers who lost their lives were featured in a slideshow.

Ali Zafar joined the stage to give us the official PSL anthem.

Ab seeti bajay gi~


Which got us like:

And had Darren Sammy dancing to the beat.


Which also called for some bantz.


Dat army cap tho. Love you, Darren. ?


Soon after, we were joined by Farhad Humayun, wearing some kick ass reflectors.


The dhol brought on a full-on dhamaal vibes at the historic play off.


Finally, we were joined by Ali Azmat and people couldn’t help but sing along. 


And gape at that beautiful tind with awe.

It was electric.

One can only imagine how INSANE the game is going to be. We’re all rooting for Pakistan. ??????
