Shadab Khan of Islamabad United can be seen taking a shot at Peshawar Zalmi in a recent Foodpanda promo. Shadab is shown in the advertisement clutching a Foodpanda bag and peering into it. The caption says, “Peshawari Chapli Kebab,” which are well-known in Pakistan, but it also takes a subtle jab at their opponent, Peshawar Zalmi, whom they were set to meet later. In other words, the dig was intended to convey to Zalmi fans that the Uniteds are prepared to devour their competitor for a snack in the next encounter.

The advertising clearly demonstrates the two teams’ strong rivalry. It also emphasizes the need of having a strong team spirit and fan support. As the PSL heats up, supporters of both sides can expect exciting matches and unforgettable moments.

The image was posted in reaction to a social media post by Islamabad United, which poked het Zalmi squad. The Peshawar Zalmi team intended to demonstrate that they, too, were prepared for a nail-biting game and were certain of an easy victory in the forthcoming encounter.

Regardless of how people respond to the image, it is apparent that both sides were preparing for their next battle with vigor. While spectators and fans enjoy the game on and off the field, it’s vital to remember that nice banter and genuine sportsmanship may make the festival even more enjoyable.
