The sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League was one of the anticipated events of 2021, and for the past few weeks, people cannot stop talking about it. Whether it is the official anthem sung by Naseebo Lal, Aima Baig, and Young Stunners or news about Esra Bilgic representing Peshawar Zalmi, we can’t get enough of it. With the cricket league kicking off yesterday, there has been a lot of conversation about the opening ceremony.
The Opening Ceremony Of Pakistan Super League 6:
One of the most surprising things about the opening ceremony was that it was held in Turkey, a country that does not even play cricket. The ceremony featured superstar Atif Aslam, Amplifier’s Imran Khan, alongside Aima Baig and Naseebo Lal, who could be seen performing in a pre-recorded ceremony in Turkey.
The pandemic affected sports ceremonies all around the world severely, and the fact that the ceremony was pre-recorded and was held at a foreign location may have to do with the situation inflicted upon by the pandemic.
Twitter Reacts To PSL – 6’s Opening Ceremony:
Just like the official anthem that had received a lot of polarizing reactions from the public, the opening ceremony also received pretty divided reactions.
Many pointed out Humaima Malik’s role in the ceremony, which got many viewers confused.
