Most of you might know what has been going on on Twitter, but just in case you don’t, well, let me tell you that just a few days ago, our very famous cricketer, Shoaib Akhtar tweeted about announcing something very important and Pakistanis were super intrigued and curious to find out what is it that he has to announce!
Although Shoaib Akhtar was talking about PSL what he was actually talking about was Pakistan Stains League! This brilliant campaign was started by Pakistan’s leading detergent brand Surf Excel. Yes! Surf Excel is collaborating up with Shoaib Akhter to launch Pakistan Stain League (PSL), a campaign focused around different stains and how Shoaib is going to bowl them out!
We see what you did there, Shoaib! Interesting!
Check out his recent announcement and the BIG reveal!
Aur intezaar khatam hua. Ab hoga tezi ka muqaabla aaj kal kay bachon say. Let the most exciting league of Pakistan begin.

We love how the brand has smartly used the name ‘PSL’ and this is exactly what had caught everyone’s attention! Not just this but the fact that it will run parallel to Pakistan Super League! Well played, Surf Excel!
Also, did you notice the names of the 4 teams – Ketchup King, Keechar United, Grease Gladiators and Salan Sultan? Utterly cute!!
Here’s ‘the’ tweet that ad triggered everyone’s curiosity!
Hi guys. I’m about to make a very important announcement and I’m sure you all will love it.
