With the countdown to the highly anticipated Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 9 underway, fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the anthem that will set the stage for this PSL journey. Over the years, PSL anthems have become a crucial element of the tournament, with each season bringing a new musical sensation. One name that has become synonymous with PSL anthems is none other than the singing sensation, Ali Zafar. As the speculations loom, the singer has taken to social media to gauge public opinion on whether he should lend his voice once again to the anthem of PSL 9.
The PSL Anthem Legacy
Ali Zafar’s association with PSL anthems dates back to the inaugural season in 2016 when he sang and produced “Ab Khel Ke Dikha.” This was followed by the record-breaking anthem “Ab Khel Jamay Ga” in 2017 and “Dil Se Jaan Laga De” in 2018. Subsequent years saw collaborations with other artists, creating a diverse musical tapestry for the league. The 2021 anthem, “Groove Mera,” and the 2022 anthem, “Agay Dekh,” showcased the collective talents of various artists, each leaving an indelible mark.

He posed a question about his potential involvement in creating the anthem for PSL 9, seeking honest opinions on whether it would positively impact the league, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), and the overall fan experience. Zafar’s sincerity was shown as he expressed a lack of ego, emphasizing his genuine interest in aligning the anthem with the sentiments and preferences of the people of Pakistan.
The Quest for Public Sentiment
Ali Zafar’s posts on social media indicate a departure from the traditional process of anthem creation.
