Shadab Khan trolls Hasan Ali, predicts Islamabad United winning PSL 2020

Hasan Ali, the Pakistani bowler who is famous for his explosive celebrations, will be vital to the Zalmi's plans to finally get the trophy that has eluded them in the last two years. Peshawar Zalmi last won the PSL in 2017. When a video featuring a few Islamabad United players was posted, Ali took the opportunity to taunt the team and replied "Yellow > red". Red is the colour of the Islamabad United kit and Yellow is the colour of the Peshawar Zalmi kit. Hasan's team lost the 2018 final to Islamabad.
