Season 3 of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018 has been started with a bang in Dubai on Thursday. In its opening match the new team Multan Sultans beat defending champions Peshawar Zalmi by seven wickets. However, the new look of Pakistani fast bowler Wahab Riaz was a bigger centre of attraction than the match result. Wahab riaz was trolled for Australian bowler Mitchell Johnson-like whiskers and soon the Twitter was flooded with some hilarious comments.
Mohammad Hafeez also uploaded a selfie on twitter with Wahab before the first game and wrote “Ready to go for the opening ceremony & our 1st game of PSL#3 , not sure about @WahabViki new look.”

In 2013-14 Ashes series Johnson had sported the similar look, where he took 34 wickets in Australia’s 5-0 triumph against the rival England. And see what people saying about it:

Wahab Riaz himself admit that Johnson was an inspiration for the change. “See, it’s good to be inspired by anyone for anything that benefits you. And, if I’m inspired by Mitchell, then I’d love to say thank you to him,” he was quoted as saying by the DNA.
