KARACHI (Sports Reporter):- Pakistan Super League 7th edition kicked off at National Stadium Karachi on Thursday evening with a spectacular opening ceremony.
PSL 7 anthem artists Atif Aslam and Aima Baig performed in colorful opening ceremony.
The singers performed the PSL anthem “Agay Dekh”, while they were sporting some amazing dresses and dancing to the tune.
Prime Minister Imran Khan’s special message to the PSL teams was also displayed during the ceremony, followed by a vibrant fireworks display.
But, like the previous year, people have shared their two cents on Aima Baig’s performance this time as well.
First Match of the tournament was played between Karachi Kings and Multan Sultan which won by Multan Sultan in captaincy of Muhammd Rizwan.
Skipper Mohammad Rizwan and Imran Tahir shined the brightest on Thursday as they helped their team sail to a seven-wicket victory against Karachi Kings in the opening match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at National Stadium.
Rizwan played a captain’s knock as he scored 52 off 47 balls, while Tahir gave his side the opening wicket and also took a total of three crucial scalps — Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Nabi, and Tom Lammonby — after they won the toss and put Karachi to bat.
The Kings’ bowlers could not perform up to the mark as they were already under pressure as the Babar Azam-led side had handed a meagre 124-run target to the Sultans, which they completed in 18.2 overs at the loss of three wickets.
