After Peshawar Zalmi was brutally defeated by Lahore Qalandars at the opening match of Pakistan Super League 2021, netizens heavily trolled the Zalmi team. Not just for losing the match but for putting more thought into the team’s brand ambassadors than the actual player line-up.
Sports fans called out the weak strategy for Zalmi’s opening match. Some balmed Zalmi CEO Javed Afridi for splurging on brand ambassadors when he should have invested in the best players. PSL2 winners did not affirm a strong presence in PSL6.
Both Zalmi fans and cricket fans in opposite camps took to trolling Peshawar Zalmi for its opening fiasco.

The bit about having the best brand ambassadors but not the best team was a major trolling point.
I hope zalmi gets out of the series soon…javed afridi ke haaath me tssbeeh aor side me haseena hoti hai. Ye ki mazaaq hai yar
Ye cricket team nahi models sponsor karwara hai….pukhtaana ye osharmawal de nadida https://t.co/e4J2jO87xU

Zalmi CEO Javed Afridi bore the worst of the trolling. People are largely blaming him for Zalmi’s opening performance.

Some even went as far as to call an ambassador unlucky for the team.

Others were kinder with their criticism.

Who do you blame for Zalmi’s unimpressive start to PSL 2021? Are there any memes we missed you would have liked us to add? Share in the comment section.
