Taking the very first PSL hattrick
Recently, PSL shared the memories from HBL PSL 1, and Amir was the one who took the first-ever hat trick in the history of the tournament. Amir was playing against the Lahore Qalanars and dismissed DJ Bravo, Khan, and Cooper to claim the first hat trick in PSL. This was the 19th over, LQ was already in trouble, and Amir put a final dent in it. Rizwan could only see it from the other end. What a time it was!
As the days get near, the excitement for HBL PSL season 9 is increasing. An air of excitement, the joy of cricket, the cracking sound of the bat middling the ball, and those toe-crushing yorkers. Which aspect of HBL PSL are you most excited about? If you are a Gladiator, you must be waiting for Mohammad Amir. You must be waiting for him to bowl those inswinging deliveries right off the back.
