PSL Festive Season Across the Country!
Multan Sultans, now is the part of PSL, there has set a beautiful festive-like wave all across the country. It is so amazing to look at everyone preparing for PSL like, it is going to be Eid in the country. People have literally been seen leaving everything aside just to support their favorite team in the tournament while wearing their PSL t-shirts along with their squad and have done special preparations for it.
Pakistan Super League like a festival for us. For a country like Pakistan, where cricket is loved by every single citizen and is religiously followed by everyone, this indeed is a significant time worth celebrating.
Pakistan Super League will be very unlike the previous ones as this time there is so much to the table like, the joining in multiple International cricket stars as well as the addition of a new team from Punjab, the ‘Multan Sultans’.
The new franchise ‘Multan Sultans’ is owned by Schon Properties, a real estate development company located in UAE. The addition of this team was decided right after the final draft of PSL.
All You Need to Know About ‘Multan Sultans’
This team is based in the city of Multan, Punjab and was established back in 2017. The team is captained by the ex ‘Karachi Kings’ captain ‘Shoaib Malik’. Malik failed to perform and lead well in KK. But this time, he is seen to be an excellent captaincy, which is sure to lead them towards the later stages of the game.
National and International Stars are in the Bandwagon!
The best things about league matches has to be the fact that you get to see national and international players playing together for a single team and having each other’s back, against the competing team.
PSL though a very new venture, made sure that the players they are calling for the tournament are very famous and legendary. (No Imran Khan, they are NOT ‘Phateechar’)
The players who are playing for MS in PSL 2018 include our own version of Kohli, Ahmed Shehzad (own version of Kohli), Shoaib Maqsood, Umar Gul, Shoaib Maqsood, Sohail Tanvir,Junaid Khan, and Muhammad Irfan etc.
The International names include the iconic Keiron Pollard, the champion Darren Bravo, the amazing batsman Kumar Sangakkara, and many others.
One of the great features of this talented team is their captain. “Thomas Mason Moody” a former Australian first class cricketer, who also coached Sri Lanka cricket team formerly, has made sure that the players are determined and play all the best in this tournament. He applied to be the head coach of Indian cricket team back in 2017 and is still waiting for the decision of the board.
Waseem and Waqar in the team:
When the team was announced, the franchise planned on to employ both the W’s of Pakistani Cricket world to it. “Wasim Akram” and “Waqar Younus”. The former was to be appointed as the “Cricket Operations Director” and the later was to be the mentor and the head coach. This decision raised many eyebrows as the two are big names and it seems like “Multan Sultans” would have to deal with two decision makers.
Multan Sultan has a very enthusiastic song of which everyone is seen humming these days. Their theme song titles ‘Hum hain Multan ke Sultans’ which is sung by the super talented “Waqar Ehsin” who knows just how to make people go crazy over thus tune.
