Umar Akmal, who is more often in the news for his trash talks and out of the box ideas, has goofed up once again. During one of the promotional events for the ongoing Pakistan Super League, Akmal, who is part of Quetta Gladiators, made a big mistake while promoting the league.
“Zaahir si baat hai Quetta ki team Karachi aayi hui hai aur hum apne home ground pe khel rahe hai, aur crowd jitna bhi support karega humari team ko, team utna accha perform karegi. Aur crowd issi tarike se har team ko support karega toh agla IPL (corrects), sorry PSL yahi pe hoga [It is obvious that with Quetta at home in Karachi, we will be banking on our home support. As many people come out and support us, the better our team will perform. If the crowd continues to support us like this then the next IPL, sorry PSL, will be played here only],” he said.

Karachi was not part of the original plans to host PSL matches in the ongoing edition but Lahore’s inability to conduct the games on its soil due to suspension of airspace moulded things in Karachi’s favor.
The eight matches – four in the league stages and four in the playoffs, including the final, will be played in Karachi.
