Every year during the PSL season, there’s a new anthem and a hundred new critiques disliking it and this year hasn’t been much different.
Groove Mera, the official PSL anthem this year featuring Naseebo Lal, Aima Baig and Young Stunners has gathered strong reactions from fans, with most celebrities loving it:
But Shoaib Akhtar isn’t amused:
Really disappointed by the anthem this year. Is this how you're taking PSL brand up? Going down every year. Kon banata hai yeh.

Some were calling him out on commenting on the negatives only:
This guy checks what the "negative" trend is and starts blabbering about it. Always negative because he knows that negativity will sell quicker and give him more view 🤚

Some thought he was blackmailed into disliking the anthem:
Absolutely pathetic as ever. What he even has to do with a song. Better make some video on Pakistan cricket. Just to support his friend ,he will go to any level. People should stop supporting the blackmailer ali zafar. https://t.co/GXI7birWfz

Some really didn’t understand the controversy surrounding the song:
It's just an promotional song for a Cricket League ffs , don't understand why they are making it like an national issue https://t.co/NMyuMiLvGb
