Revisit the coolest (and bizarre) celebrations in PSL

By
Web Desk

The Pakistan Super League has given us many reasons to laugh out loud (and make memes, of course).

From Imad Wasim’s 'Ronaldo' imitation to Imran Tahir's accelerated running, the camera caught many such hilarious moments from last year’s PSL which we are revisiting here:

Umaid 'Iron Man' Asif

During Peshawar Zalmi's last-ball win over Quetta Gladiators in the first eliminator in PSL 2018, right-arm medium Umaid Asif stole most of the limelight when he flaunted the 'Iron Man' T-shirt while celebrating Mahmudullah's wicket.

Yasir Shah's dhamaal

Yasir Shah decided to go full 'Qalandar' when he performed a dhamaal - a Sufi spiritual dance.

Imad Wasim's Ronaldo fandom 

Karachi Kings' Imad Wasim seemed intent on showing off his best Cristiano Ronaldo impression after taking wickets.

Wahab Riaz's horse-shoe moustache

Wahab Riaz won us over with his horse-shoe moustache, clearly inspired by former Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson.

The Peshawar Zalmi speedster thoroughly enjoyed his new look as much as the fans, especially when he tweaked his moustache after getting a wicket.

Shaheen Afridi's (no) celebration

Who said everyone has to celebrate a wicket? Teen sensation Shaheen Shah Afridi stopped just short of celebrating the 38-year-old Shahid Afridi's dismissal out of respect.

Imran Tahir's running

South Africa's spin wizard Imran Tahir fascinates everyone when he gets someone out. He runs like a racer. Without any brakes. He runs and runs, until his teammates gather around him or he nears the boundary, then he has to stop.

The spinner, playing for Multan Sultans in his first ever PSL appearance in 2018, truly entertained the fans with his style.

Sammy's sword

Fan favourite Darren Sammy adopted a warrior style last season. He smashed a boundary, then wiped his bat clean on his sleeves as if it were a sword.

Asghar's dance

Mohammad Asghar performed an elegant dance after taking a wicket, and fans loved it.
