The inaugural season of the T10 League lived up to all the entertainment and excitement that was predicted before the start of the tournament. The star-studded franchise Kerala Kings was crowned the champions as they beat the Punjabi Legends in the final match of the league.
Former Pakistan captain and all-rounder Shahid Afridi gave the inaugural edition a grand opening by picking up a maiden hat-trick on the first day itself for his side Pakhtoons in the league match against Maratha Arabians. Bollywood actress Zareen Khan who was at the stadium in Sharjah danced to joy after the leg-spinner claimed his hat-trick.
All the three victims, Rilee Rossouw, Dwayne Bravo and Virender Sehwag are specialist players of the shorter format of the game, but they failed to read the deliveries bowled by Afridi. The hat-trick can also be regarded as the turning point in the ten over a-side game as it helped the Pakhtoons win the match by 25 runs, after scoring 121 runs batting first in their quota of ten overs. Skipper Afridi was also awarded the Man of the Match for his superb bowling performance in the match.
Zareen feels Afridi is still young and adorable
Popular Indian actress Zareen was there cheering for the Pakhtoons with her dancing shoes on at the Sharjah stadium. She was seen twisting on a Pashto song enjoying herself during the thrilling game between Arabians and Pakhtoons.
After every wicket or boundary, the camera moved to her and she bottled up in joy and her excitement was at the highest level all throughout the tournament. Zareen even spoke in an interview after the match about the former Pakistan captain’s performance during which she revealed that Afridi is still very young and an adorable personality.
“Not sure about cricket but adore Afridi,” said the actress in an interview after the match.
