Ali, who is passionate about both music and cricket had penned down the official anthems for the previous two PSL seasons.  Ab Khel Kay Dikha was the title for the PSL debut season, while Ab Khel Jamay Ga was for the second year of PSL, the latter of which has been seen and heard over 6 million times on YouTube alone.

“Two things that lie at the heart of our nation’s DNA are cricket and music and I am extremely fortunate to live these two passions in this lifetime. As exciting as it is to write, compose and to sing the official anthem for the third time, it was actually quite challenging given that last year’s anthem was such a massive hit,” the singer has earlier said.

He further added, “I cannot explain how humbling it was to hear it play from every car, home and in every street when the final came home to Pakistan. In fact, when I was writing it, I wrote the entire chorus based on the vision, hope and dream of cricket returning to Pakistan and we are very fortunate that it did! This year’s anthem takes that thought further and it is based on a celebration; that last year’s dream was fulfilled, that the PSL embraces the very essence of cricket and pride; that Pakistan and Pakistanis will take the Super League to the next level again this year.”

On the acting front, Ali Zafar’s Pakistani film debut titled Teefa in Trouble, directed by maestro Ahsan Rahim and co-starring Maya Ali is due to release in 2018.
