It appears that the chief justice of Pakistan, Justice Saqib Nisar, is just as much a cricket fan as any other Pakistani.
In photographs tweeted by the Pakistan Cricket Board on Wednesday, the country’s top judge could be seen enjoying the Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi match at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
The pictures showed the chief justice sitting next to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi in the stadium’s VIP enclosure.
According to reports, the chief justice came to watch the match on the special invitation of Najam Sethi.

Peshawar Zalmi defeated Karachi Kings by 13 runs in the second eliminator match at the Gaddafi Stadium. They will now face Islamabad United in the tournament’s final at Karachi’s National Stadium on Sunday (March 25)—over nine years after the city last hosted international cricketers.
