Coming into the 5th season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), a plethora of reservations were there over the squad of Lahore Qalandars as cricket pundits predicted another last position finish for the most entertaining team of the tournament.
However, tables were turned as Sohail Akhtar led side showed character despite a horrible start. Claiming victories in 5 of their last 7 games, Lahore qualified for PSL knock-outs for the first time in their history.
The news was even able to extract admiration out of the former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra. Discussing the 2020 edition of the PSL, the longstanding cricket analyst shared that he was elated to see Lahore qualifying for the final-four stage of the 6-team event. Moreover, he congratulated Pakistan for staging a successful show as the residents provided a stellar response to make the 20-over tournament a massive hit.
