Imran Tahir looked very emotional after giving
his team the title. Imran said, "When he was made the captain of the team, many people said it was wrong. It's a special feeling. A lot of people said a lot of negative things... I just want to thank god. I kept believing in myself. Love to all of you, thank you CPL..." Let me tell you that when Imran was saying such things, he had tears in his eyes. By the way, Imran is now getting a lot of praise on social media.
