Yaqeen rakhna hai [We have to keep believing]. Thanks to all the fans, staff, players, coaches and owner.” He added, “Really happy for Lahore Qalandars. A win for Shaheen Afridi is a win for me.” LQ’s Afridi wrote, “The wait of seven long years has finally ended. We are PSL champions. Grateful to every single player, coaches, owners, staff and super fans for your belief. You made it possible. Muhammad Rizwan bhai and Multan Sultans, you fought like champions.” Islamabad United’s Shadab Khan, who won the best bowler award at the tournament, tweeted, “I thank Allah for the award of the best bowler in PSL. Individual awards are good but I would exchange all individual awards for my team winning. I dedicate this award to all Islamabad United fans, management, coaches and ownership.

She also tagged Sana Mir, who was not present during the match. Abbas wrote, “A journey of seven years of HBLPSL. Started off solo in 2016, cut to 2022 and the power of women is evident.
