According to press release issued by the PCB, ‘the opening ceremony will have some parts filmed offshore in a specially designed studio space in Turkey’.
As has been the tradition in earlier editions, the opening ceremony will be followed by the first-match of the season in which defending champions Karachi Kings will play Quetta Gladiators in the night match.
Remember, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and bio-secure bubble created for players and officials, there will be no opening ceremony at the National Stadium, Karachi.
The opening ceremony start time will be revealed in the coming week.
Director Commercial PCB Babar Hamid: “This year’s opening ceremony promises to be really exciting especially with the state-of-the-art technology being used to create this experience for Pakistani fans.
“As always, the excitement is further raised with the opening clash of the tournament, and the people in Karachi, I am sure will look forward to see Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators take the field as they both enjoy a huge fan base in the city.”
