Fakhar Zaman might have failed to make it matter in the final for the Lahore Qalandars against the former champions Multan Sultans walking back to the pavilion with just three runs to his name but, the elegant opener had a memorable Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 finishing as the leading run-scorer having amassed 588 runs in 13 matches.

While Zaman was one of the key performers in the Qalandars’ PSL 2022 triumph, he has lately come forward and shared a hilarious moment where two of his die-hard fans had posed for a selfie with the southpaw. However, what really stands out here is that it was a long-distance selfie and even though the fans did not get an opportunity to meet the Pakistan cricketer, they at least obliged by tagging him on social media.

Fakhar Zaman shares a hilarious fan moment on social media

It so happened that during the summit clash, one of those two fans took to social media and posted an image paying tribute to Fakhar Zaman whom they had clicked while he was fielding at the boundary in the second innings. The image was hilariously captioned as ‘Selfie With Fakhar Zaman’. Nonetheless, when it came to Fakhar’s notice, he gave them a special mention by sharing the same on social media and captioning it as ‘It was nice to meet you’ with a laughing emoji.

Coming back to the PSL seven final, while the southpaw did fail with the bat, he made up for it on the field running out an in-form Shan Masood early just when it appeared as if he was going to cut loose in the final over of the Powerplay. That wicket was arguably the turning point of the contest as the Sultans ran out of fire and brimstone thereafter in their stiff run chase of 181.

The middle-order duo of Khushdil Shah and Tim David did add 51 runs for the sixth-wicket stand but, once the duo was dismissed, it was curtains down for them as the last edition’s winners failed to retain their title. Multan Sultans were skittled for 138 with three balls to spare and Lahore Qalandars were crowned champions by 42 runs.
