The second season of Pakistan Super League has already started successfully.
PSL 2 is the sequel to the first season of PSL (Pakistan Super League) which went equally successfully last year. PSL 2 created a lot more interest and kept cricket fans in Pakistan and across the world hooked.
Grand Opening Ceremony for PSL 2
The PSL 2 came in style with one of the most stylish opening ceremonies any sport has ever seen in Pakistan. The event started by playing the national anthems of UAE and Pakistan. Top artists of the country like Shehzad Roy and Ali Zafar performed at the event. Another world recognized celeb and Jamaican Singer Shaggy also shared the stage.
In remembrance of the great singer turned islamic scholar Junaid Jamshed, his famous song Dil Dil Pakistan was played to give him a tribute.
The Amazing Light Display at PSL Event
The lights of the stadium were switched off to show an amazing display of colorful LEDs matching the musicians’ performances. The performance of the suspended drummers made the event even more memorable.
PSL has become a Binding Force
Teams from all provinces of Pakistan participate in this event. PSL has become a unifying force among Pakistanis anywhere in the world. TSongs were played in all four local languages of the provinces to strengthen this unity. The five teams participating in the event include Lahore Qalandars, Quetta Gladiators, Peshawar Zalmi, Islamabad United, and Karachi Kings.
Why PSL 2 has been more special?
There are many reasons to celebrate PSL 2. The first is that it was a significant financial risk when the first season of Pakistan Super League was about to start. It took much effort on the part of PCB and other individuals to make it possible.
Second, it was not easy to attract international talent. The event had to be financially viable to make it a success.
Third, it becomes even more special if the final of PSL 2 is played in Lahore.
Pakistan cricket was able to groom its local talent and find the next big players in the first season of PSL. These kinds of events are particularly more useful for Pakistan starved of international cricket for a long time.
Pakistan Super League has proved that nothing is impossible. Hard work, determination and commitment to anything can do wonders.
