We take anthems very seriously when it comes to cricket. There was a huge fuss about the PSL anthem that was sung by Naseebo Lal, Aima Baig, and Young Stunners, even though the song was a huge hit, there was a lot of conversation around it on social media on baseless points.
Later, Peshawar Zalmi’s song was criticized for being a little ‘too much’ or ‘overdone’, however, we think it was a league of its own, featuring Hania Aamir, Mahira Khan and Turkish actress, Esra Bilgic. The Peshawar Zalmi set a bar for other teams, and quite frankly the bar was raised quite high for others to reach.
Lahore Qalandars finally released their anthem last night which has not just left fans in fits but also super confused. This is because instead of competing, in terms of having popular people on board, getting the best music producers to produce the anthem, big production etc. the Lahore Qalandars anthem relied on a fun anthem sung by Abrar ul Haq in Punjabi. The video featured the top players from Lahore Qalandar which definitely advanced the vibe and many on Twitter can’t get enough.
Check out the groovy anthem here:
Many Twitter users took to the micro-blogging site and expressed how they felt about the newly-released anthem
Some questioned if there was a marketing team hired or not because the video quality looks like a student assignment relentlessly shot in front of a green screen
Do Lahore Qalandars have a team? I don't mean the players. I mean do they have a marketing team at all? Or did the players just get up to some antics themselves and decided to call it an anthem https://t.co/2TIPE6WlAh

While their performance was at a peak, the anthem represented otherwise
Lahore Qalandars anthem is an accurate visual representation of their past PSL performances

At least they won the meme war
Peshawar Zalmi hired some renowned artists etc to create a "sophisticated/modern" anthem for PSL 2021
Lahore Qalandars went full desi & won the meme war

I don’t want Lahore Qalandars to change their anthem next year. Abrar ul haq is the king of Punjabi music and he made the best song ever!! This song deserves to heard by the future generations as well.
