Shahnawaz Dahani has put Larkana on the map via his brilliant performance in the recently-concluded PSL 2021 and denizens of the city showed they love their hometown hero by welcoming him with open arms. 

As Dahani arrived from Abu Dhabi Saturday evening, hundreds showed up at Larkana to welcome the right-arm fast bowler. 

Dahani enchanted cricket fans around the world, especially his fellow countrymen, by taking an impressive 20 wickets throughout the tournament, emerging as the PSL 2021’s highest wicket-taker. 

The hometown hero was showered with rose petals as hundreds surrounded his car Saturday night to show their love and appreciation for him. 

Dahani took to Twitter to thank the people for standing in the scorching heat of Larkana for several hours just to pay tribute to him. 

WaTu Izzu Man Tasha-o WaTu Zillu Man Tasha. How can I thank people who in the scorching heat of Larkana, waited for hours to welcome me? Simply it was a great feeling,” he tweeted. 

The bowler vowed never to disappoint his fans. 

“Thank you all who came to show their love, respect, and support for me. InshAllah, I will always make you proud of me,” he added.
