One thing is undeniable, Pakistanis have a killer sense of humor and it translates in their superior meme skills. Guess, having to power through the countless adversities life throws our way, Pakistanis have learned to use humor as a coping mechanism.
Anyway, this just makes us even more excited for the showdown on Tuesday, November 17 that is going to be one for the history books. It’s the final being played by Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings. Some have termed this match as the whole reason for the creation of the PSL and honestly, with the way 2020 has been so far, this match is definitely looking like one bright, fun thing to look forward to.
