Not so good news for cricket fans across the country as Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided not to hold the opening ceremony of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) season seven.
According to sources, there will be no cultural activities on January 27 at National Stadium Karachi like the previous editions. The decision was taken due to the Covid-19 situation and logistical problems.
However, there will be a short ceremony in which PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja will address and after it, the first match of the tournament will commence. Defending champions Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings will face each other in the first match.
Meanwhile, the official anthem of this season will be released by January 20 or 21. PCB officials are finalising the program in this regard.
It must be noted that the opening ceremony of PSL 6 also didn't take place at the start of the competition. It was shot in Turkey and the fans witnessed it via state-of-the-art technology.
The first four ceremonies were held at the Dubai International Stadium while the 2020 opening ceremony was staged at the National Stadium in Karachi.
