PSL 7 begins tomorrow (Jan 27) and it's already got the stamp of approval from the prime minister. The teams have been dropping teasers, anthems and brand ambassador announcements, but many think the PSL has the best ambassador of all — Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The PTI posted a video of the PM opening the tournament two days before it actually opened with the caption, "PM Imran Khan's message on the PSL" and the hashtag #LevelHai." The video features PM Imran's former teammate and current PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja walking in slow motion towards him with dramatic music in the background, on his way to see the PM and make the announcement for the opening.
"I'm opening the seventh PSL and I hope every team fights till the last ball and entertains the public," PM Imran addressed the camera before using his index finger to transform the screen to the PSL's green.
A few hours later, the PSL shared the same video on Twitter and said, "Just a preview of what's to come. Catch all the action starting from our curtain raiser on 27th January at 6:30 PM. Kon araha hai stadium [Who is coming to the stadium]?"
Some fans joked that the PTI may have posted earlier by mistake.
Others really liked the slow motion walk!
Some even said the PM should "run his campaign through this platform".
It won some points for the league.
One user even threw shade at the PSL anthem, praising this instead.
Someone said the video belongs on TikTok,
And users were quick to turn it into a TikTok video.
This user was too worried about Covid ruining the tournament to comment on the video. We feel you!
Both fans and national cricketers admitted "PM ka #LevelHai."
