Karachi university offering scholarships to the cricketers is another chain in the events.
The next match of Pakistan is lined up against Afghanistan, which will be held today. Afghanistan’s cricket team will be facing the green shirts, and the tension will be built up once again as both the team and the nation set their eyes on the T20 trophy.

Boosted by their brilliant performance in the 10-wicket rout of arch-rivals India on Sunday, Rauf inspired the 2009 champions to victory in front of a boisterous Sharjah crowd comprising Pakistani ex-pats.
“I feel proud of myself after yesterday’s performance. It was my dream to win a match for Pakistan and finally, a long wait came to an end,” Haris said in an interview.
“Our plan is to give hundred percent. In T20Is, not every player performs, one or two players win you matches. In last match, Shaheen performed and now my performance helped Pakistan win, maybe someone else in the next match. It is how T20 cricket runs,” he concluded.
