So we’re not exactly your go-to place when it comes to sports and we’re fine with that. Marathon Shopping would perhaps be the only faintly sporty thing we do BUT that does not stop us from admiring this field from a reasonable distance… Fortunately, this totally changes when it comes to our boys in green! With the World Cup right around the corner, we’ve suddenly turned sporty spice on you. After all, when it comes to celebrities in Pakistan, our cricketers are the real stars. We just love how they unite us and bring us together. When we heard that the entire cricket team was being hosted by Pepsi in Lahore to bid them an official farewell for the ICC Cricket World Cup in Australia, we just couldn’t resist attending.
The event was hosted by Ahmed Ali Butt and Anusheh Asad who were cracking jokes throughout the show. Meanwhile, some notable faces were seen in the crowd including names like Fawad Khan (sigh), Bilal Lashari, QB, Ali Azmat, Najam Sethi and more.
The most entertaining part of the evening was when all the cricketers came on-stage to reveal the official jersey for Pakistan. It was a truly heart thumping, screaming out loud kind of moment! The cricket team is headed out to Australia and we all [present or not at the event] wish them a super duper good luck.
Our favourite, Shahid Afridi will be playing his last World Cup along with skipper Misbah-ul-Haq which leaves us not wanting to miss a single moment of the upcoming action. So get ready Pakistan, the first match that will leave us gasping for breath is scheduled for February 15, 2015 early morning – i.e., Pakistan versus India. Cricket is our pride and we hope and pray that this year the ICC World Cup will come home.
