Sherfane Rutherford is everywhere.
Karachi Kings, on Tuesday, were crowned the champions of Pakistan Super League (PSL) after Babar Azam's (63 off 49) heroics with the bat helped his team register a comfortable victory over Lahore Qalandars by five wickets. Chasing Lahore's 134 for seven wickets, Karachi finished the business with eight balls to spare and five wickets in hand.
Notably, this was the first time ever Karachi lifted the trophy since the inception of PSL. But for the Caribbean cricketer Sherfane Rutherford, it's an entirely different story.
Rutherford, who was part of the winning Karachi squad in PSL on November 17, had earlier lifted the trophy for Mumbai Indians in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League where the Men in Blue defeated Delhi Capitals in the big finals on November 10.
Although the 22-year-old cricketer didn't feature in a single match for MI, the fact that he was part of two big wins in two T20 leagues within a span of 7 days wasn't lost on anyone.
