Hasan Ali Faces Trolling Before Pakistan Premier League
Meanwhile, ahead of the Pakistan Premier League 2020, Peshawar Zalmi pacer Hasan Ali involved in friendly Twitter banter with Islamabad United skipper Shadab Khan. Ali started off the banter after he wrote on a promotional video of the United, ‘Yellow > Red” saying that his Zalmi who plays in the yellow jersey is better than men in red Islamabad United.
Shadab Khan was quick to troll the pacer as he compared the number of trophies won by both the side. The skipper of the most successful franchise of Pakistan Premier League replied, “2 PSL trophies > 1 PSL trophy,” Islamabad based franchise has won the title two times in 2016 and 2018. On the other hand, Zalmi has lifted the trophy only once in 2017 under the captaincy of Darren Sammy.
Afterwards, Hasan Ali made an attempt to give a suitable reply but instead ended up trolling himself. He wrote, “Koi nai is saal 2 > 2 kr dain gai.” Shadab was quick to figure out the math mistake of the latter. United’s skipper trolled back the pacer, “Pehli baat 2=2 hota hai, 2>2 tou ho nahi sakta. Dosri baat 3>1 yaad rakhna”
Pehli baat 2=2 hota hai, 2>2 tou ho nahi sakta. Dosri baat 3>1 yaad rakhna
