As per the media partner, PSL franchises objected to the decision of PCB to sign Ali Zafar for the song. A high official had committed to the plan and Ali Zafar had prepared three songs, one of which was selected.

Later a female official from a PSL franchise criticised the decision of the PCB to hire Ali Zafar for composing and singing the song.

She contended that linking Ali Zafar with the anthem might adversely impact the league’s reputation, given the past harassment allegations against him. Considering her apprehensions, the PCB decided to retract its choice of involving Ali Zafar in the project.

The singer has voiced his dissatisfaction with this unexpected development, initially seeking public input via a social media poll and later expressing his frustration through two detailed posts.

PCB has not decided yet who will replace Ali Zafar. Taking to X, Ali Zafar expressed dissatisfaction and posted a poll asking his followers if he should sing the anthem of PS or not.

In his tweet, he said, “Do you think that if I did the anthem of PSL this year, it will enhance the image of the brand of PSL and PCB, deepen the connection with people, and bring more financial benefit to all stakeholders or will it prove to be otherwise?”

“Be honest with your votes. I have no ego and I won’t mind. I just want to see how the people of Pakistan think and what their wishes are vs a few individuals in positions of influence or power,” he said further.

In the secondary tweet, he said, I will explain later, why I have posted this tweet 🙂 abhee just vote.”
