Pakistan’s very own franchise-based T20 league, the Pakistan Super League (PSL), has been a tremendous success since its inception.

As a bid to do so, a new franchise from Multan called the Multan Sultans were announced. The Sultans unveiled their logo and jersey at a ceremony on Friday (September 22).
Sultans’ logo has got the right mixture of cricket and local sentiment. It features a cricketer riding a horse, which is also displayed in the jersey. It was only officially announced that the team will have the services of former Pakistani legend Wasim Akram, who will operate as the Director of Cricket. Not only that, Indian Premier League (IPL) winning coach Tom Moody’s role as the head coach of the team was also confirmed.
Speaking about the love his team has been receiving from the locals who seemed to have embraced the Sultans with open arms. director of the team Asher Schon said: “It is great to see everyone welcoming Multan Sultans, the love and enthusiasm is surreal and makes us feel very proud on making the right choice of the team, our logo symbolizes power and visually positions our determination to lead the way, be it on-field or off-field.”
Speaking about the team’s head coach Moody, Schon added, “I believe in Tom we have found the ideal man for this role. He possesses years of coaching experience with various franchises which enables him to play a crucial role in nurturing young talent and player development.”
