Karachi: Pakistan cricketer Umar Akmal committed an embarrassing mistake when promoting the Pakistan Suer League (PSL) recently.
Umar, playing for Quetta Gladiators, mentioned ‘IPL’ instead of ‘PSL’ in the promotional video.
“Zaahir si baat hai Quetta ki team Karachi aayi hui hai aur hum apne home ground pe khel rahe hain, aur crowd jitna bhi support karega hamari team ko, team utna accha perform karegi. Aur crowd issi tarike se har team ko support karega toh agla IPL sorry PSL yahin pe hoga (Our team Quetta is here in Karachi and we are playing on our home ground. More the support from the crowd, better the team will perform. And if the crowd supports every team like this, the next IPL sorry PSL will be held here)", he said.

The PSL moved to Pakistan on Saturday, and the playoff matches as well as the final will be played in Karachi. The summit clash is scheduled for March 17.
Only the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) featured Pakistan cricketers, while they have been banned from 2009 due to political tensions between India and Pakistan.
The IPL will have an early start this year keeping the ICC Cricket World Cup in mind. The eight-team tournament will kick off on March 23....
