The world will witness the biggest stardust opening ceremony of the sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 6) today on Saturday.
According to the details, the opening ceremony of PSL 6 will be aired on Pakistan Television (PTV) and other private channels at 6:45 PM.
It was reported earlier that the opening ceremony would be held in Karachi’s National Stadium but due to the place being designated as a bio-secure bubble, the ceremony was recorded in Istanbul, Turkey.
Many celebrities including Atif Aslam, Humaima Malick, and Groove Mera singers; Naseebo Lal, Aima Baig, and Young Stunners had flown to Turkey to record the opening ceremony.
It should be mentioned here that the first match of PSL 6 is between one-time winners Quetta Gladiators and defending champions Karachi Kings.
This year, the matches of PSL 2021 will be played in two major cities of Pakistan; Karachi and Lahore. Only 20% of the audience will be allowed to watch live cricket in the stadiums.
7,500 ticketed spectators will be allowed access inside the National Stadium, Karachi per match day, while around 5,500 will be able to attend each match day at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.
During the course of the event, the NCOC and the PCB will continue to work together and monitor the situation before a decision to increase crowd numbers for the three playoffs and the final is made.
The NCOC made the decision following a detailed and comprehensive briefing by the PCB officials, in which they assured that the event organizers and the PCB will strictly follow government Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures, including social distancing.
