The ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) is approaching the business end of the season. Multan Sultans, led by Mohammad Rizwan, currently top the table with 16 points after 9 games. Multan currently hold a four-point advantage over second-placed Lahore Qalandars, who defeated the Islamabad United on Saturday. During Multan's last game against the Quetta Gladiators on Friday, a hilarious incident took place during the Gladiators innings. During the 14th over of the Gladiators' innings, Multan pacer Shahnawaz Dahani castled Naseem Shah on the fourth delivery.
Elated by the wicket, Dahani turned back and sprinted towards the crowd to celebrate. Umpire Aleem Dar jokingly tried to stop Dahani from doing so but was unsuccessful.
A video of Aleem Dar's hilarious attempt to stop Dahani from celebrating was shared by PSL on their official Twitter account.
