There cannot be a better opportunity than this- Mani
Even though Dubai is currently enduring intermittent showers of rain, the play and ceremony are not expected to be halted. Moreover, the league will stay in Dubai from February 14 – 17 and then move into Sharjah. The first match will start with a star-studded ceremony as a forerunner. The opening celebration will have the Latin Grammy Award-winning Pitbull, along with one of the biggest bands in Pakistan: Junoon as the headliners.
PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani explained how the PSL is serving as a platform for aspiring superstars of the future. “It is a great inspiration for the young cricketers,” he said. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for them to show their skills and play alongside some of the greatest cricketers in the world. There cannot be a better opportunity than this,” he added.
Mani’s statement was backed by Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfaraz Ahmed. “PSL has made a huge difference. It has produced a lot of good cricketers such as Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees and Shadab Khan. This should continue, and more and more matches should be played in Pakistan,” Sarfraz was quoted as saying.
