Pakistan Super League: When Alan Wilkins entertained spectators by tweeting in Hindi, Urdu during PSL final

Lahore: Former county cricketer and renowned commentator Alan Wilkins was pretty active on social media as Peshawar Zalmi locked horns with Quetta Gladiators in Pakistan Super League (PSL) final.

The former Glamorgan and Gloucestershire player, who was a part of the commentary team for the tournament, entertained his fans on Twitter by trying his hands at Hindi as well as Urdu.

As the Gaddafi Stadium witnessed a deafening roar from the local spectators – who have been derprived of cricketeing action at home for quite some time, here’s how Wilkins kept his fans busy by posting some hilarious updates on Twitter:

Zalmi thrashed Gladiators by 58 runs, Wilkins also thanked the fans and both the teams for their support and performances.

Dear Pakistan Cricket Fans, my Urdu is basic. Need your guidance! Congratulations Zalmi! PSL2 Champions! @thePSLt20 #PSLT20

Thousands of police and troops patrolled the area around the Gaddafi Stadium and military helicopters whirred overhead in heavy security more commonly associated with visiting heads of state.

It was outside the same ground almost exactly eight years ago that Pakistan cricket suffered its worst blow when Islamist militants opened fire on a bus carrying Sri Lankan cricketers, killing eight people and wounding nine, including six visiting players.
