Twitter reacts as Sherfane Rutherford wears MI gloves
The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is hosting the remaining games of PSL 2020. The ongoing edition was started on February 20 but the tournament was suspended due to coronavirus outbreak in the country.
In the first qualifier match of the ongoing edition of PSL, the Imad Wasim-led Karachi Kings met the Multan Sultans. However, more than the match, the gloves of Sherfane Rutherford made the headlines.
While batting first, Multan Sultans posted a total of 141 on their board. Babar Azam gave a perfect start and smashed a half-century but lost his wicket at a crucial situation.
Sherfane Rutherford came to the crease when Chalton lost his wicket to Sohail Tanvir. Meanwhile, the West Indies all-rounder, Rutherford who was wearing the gloves of Mumbai Indians, caught the attention of the viewers. The left-handed batsman was a part of trophy-winning Mumbai Indians franchise in IPL 2020 but could not play a single game.
After watching the West Indies player with MI gloves, the Twitter users brutally roasted the Karachi Kings franchise. This was not the first time that something like that happened in the PSL.
A few days back, the official twitter-handle of Karachi Kings welcomed their players ahead of the playoffs. They had shared a picture of the all-rounder who was standing at the airport. Interestingly, he was spotted wearing the Mumbai Indians jersey.
