Shahveer Jafry is a personality who has made quite a name for himself through his funny videos and vlogs. He was recently a part of an interview. The topic of the interview was PSL, and he made a joke. This joke has cost him quite a lot of backfire due to its nature.
PSL season was finally upon us until it was postponed. Cricket is a love of many Pakistanis, and it has been going on for decades. You cannot mention cricket in the country without people talking about the 1992 World Cup! In light of PSL, Shahveer Jafry gave an interview. However, there is more detail in this news, as we will see below.
PSL is one of the most anticipated events of the year. As big a fan as Pakistanis are of cricket, they all want to be a part of it. The event was awaited so much that when it finally happened, it started with a bang. There is a lot of hard competition between teams and their fans when it comes to PSL. Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars are always at each other’s throats. Not a moment passes when they don’t have friendly debates and arguments.
However, 2021 also brought sad news for cricket fans. Due to some of the players testing positive for Covid, PSL got postponed. Of course, it doesn’t mean that it has been canceled. However, it will be a while before it resumes. Till then, the audience sits in anticipation yet again.
