The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is underway and is entering into its business end. Six teams are fighting tooth and nail to outclass each other. The tournament commenced in 2015 and has gone through turbulence. Match-fixing scandals, political tensions, and terror attacks have marred the sanctity of the event. However, the extravaganza has weathered the storm and is currently into its third season.

Apart from the cricketing technicalities, the tournament has also been a witness to a plethora of theme songs for several franchises as the event has progressed. A number of eminent singers have collaborated to churn out peppy numbers for the sides. In our article, we take through the theme songs of the PSL as well as the six franchises.

The official anthem provides a cutting edge to a tournament and also escalates the excitement and buzz surrounding the event. It has been sung by Ali Zafar, an eminent face in the Pakistani music and film fraternity. The song is named as ‘Dil Se Jaan Laga De’ which released a month ago before the commencement of the T20 league.

Zafar, who also has a substantial fan-base in India, has also sung the anthems of the erstwhile couple of seasons. The video also features Shahid Afridi, the skipper of the Karachi Kings, Ahmed Shehzad and Rameez Raza who has been a recognized cricket analyst and commentator over the years.
