The anthem for the latest Pakistan Super League was unveiled on Friday. The PSL 4 track, Khel Deewano Ka, was sung by EP’s frontman, Fawad Khan and produced by Coke Studio famed Shuja Haider.
The first three anthems of the cricket league were sung by Ali Zafar and were very well received. However, the latest track has garnered mixed reactions from the audience. Soon after the track was released, Twitter lit up with hilarious (and mean) tweets.
Singer Ali Zafar rendered his vocals to the first three editions of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) but in a break from tradition, the latest anthem was sung by Fawad Khan.
Fans were left wondering regarding why Zafar did not sing the anthem for this year’s tournament as well.

Turns out, the singer-cum actor’s packed schedule did not allow him to do so. Speaking on Geo News programme ‘Score’, the singer said, “Due to my busy schedule, I could not manage to sing the theme song and had informed the organizers about it in advance.”
“PSL is a brand new and I am glad that I had a role to play in its expansion,” Said Ali Zafar. He said that new faces should now emerge in the field.
Here’s what people are saying Fawad and Shuja’s latest composition:
