Pakistan Super League (PSL) is one of our favorite tournaments in the country. The tournament officially kick-started in Karachi last night with a stunning opening ceremony and huge traffic jams in Karachi.

The first match was held at the National Stadium Karachi and was between the Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings. The opening ceremony which kickstarted with PM Imran Khan’s opening video was live-streamed by thousands online who complained of it being short.

Of course, there was a live performance of the PSL anthem by Atif Aslam and Aima Baig, and a documentary exploring the history of Pakistani cricket was shown.

Some people hated the PSL Anthem so much they couldn’t get past it. However, the wardrobe for the two performers, Arif Aslam and Aima Baig, was questionable, and many pointed that out.
Awful awful song. And whoever did wardrobe for these two people did their best to sabotage it further. https://t.co/uj2aMZO39P

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Plans to Become First in Asia to Launch Women’s PSL. Read the full story here:
The newly-appointed chairman Ramiz Raja announced this week that he hopes the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will launch a women’s version of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) Twenty20 tournament soon. Ramiz’s announcement was relatively vague when he announced he has women’s PSL in his mind. However, it held significant meaning and gave hope to many women in the sport. In the same video posted on Twitter, Ramiz also announced the board’s plan to launch an Under-19 men’s edition of the PSL for men.
