Regarding Pakistan Super League Salman Iqbal said that this is a wonderful opportunity for the youngsters of Pakistan to showcase their talent as they have a lot of potential.

When asked about the reason behind the buying of Karachi Kings side in PSL, Salman Iqbal said that the cosmopolitan nature of the city makes it a mini Pakistan which is precisely the reason why he opted to acquire this team.

ARY’s ownership of the Karachi Kings franchise in Pakistan Super League is such a pleasant sight for people of Karachi and if you combine that with the upcoming sports channel then you can be rest assured that it will form a formidable combination and enhance the already growing reputation of the network.
