Asim Azhar pens apology to fans disappointed with the PSL anthem

"Trust me, being a cricket fan, I get it," he said.

Pakistan Super League (PSL) anthems are tricky business.

And so very polarising; people either love it or hate it. 2020's official track 'Tayyar Hain' is no different. The tune was released on Tuesday night but fans are not so happy with it.

Asim Azhar, who features on the song along with Ali Azmat, Arif Lohar and Haroon Rashid has taken to Twitter to write an apology letter to disappointed fans:

He wrote, "As a crazy cricket fan, I really understand the importance that cricket and PSL hold for my fellow Pakistanis. With that being said, I'm sorry to those fans, whose expectations I couldn't meet. I know you guys wait long enough for this time of the year. But everyone tried their best, tried to do something different and out of their comfort zone with only good intentions for the love of the country and cricket, And to those who are enjoying it, thank you for the love. And again, I'm sorry to the ones disappointed. Trust me, being a cricket fan, I get it."

He added that PSL anthems are not a competition and fans should refrain from making hurtful comments.

"Sure, you have all the rights to like and dislike but please understand we all do this for the same cause, for the betterment of cricket, PSL and most importantly our Pakistan. All the anthems of PSL are OUR anthems. If you don't like a certain one unfortunately, you have others to enjoy them as well," he said.

"Please try to refrain and stick to criticism only. aking personal remakrs, degrading comments or saying someone should die just for a few likes isn't cool."

He's fine with memes though; those, he says, are fun!

Did he check with the other three before making these comments ? Most troubling was his clownish hopping in his silly lined pants.

Yes I agree personal disgusting remarks should be refrained...,

They should make a regular anthem, it doesn't even need to have lyrics in it, just music, normal music not too much. i.e the theme song of Game of Thrones or the UEFA Champions League and then stick with that in every season. That is how you build a brand.

I quite like it. Especially the ending is grand
Zulfiqar Feb 02, 2020 05:59am
It’s actually pretty good. I thought the music was very catchy. Maybe the flow of lyrics could have been a little faster. Overall I think 7.75 out of 10. Not that my rating matter

I think it has a great tune. The music is catchy and has a thumping beat. Good job.

like clockwork after every psl song comes out ali zafar's sm team spends a train of tweets about he was the best at this job.

I quite liked the song. Don’t think there’r any issues with it.
Usman Khan Feb 03, 2020 02:33am
Why? I thought it was very good. Especially much better than the Ali Zafar Khel Jamay Ga anthem. Sure it takes time to pick up but afterwards it’s pure energy. Especially after Asim joins the song

Wow. What a great cricket anthem. I have seen this anthem several times and I am amazed as to how good it is. Unless people criticize you dont know how good a video is. Please feel proud of your effort. I am sure as time goes by people will use this as a standard for future anthems. Keep it up.
