On this occasion the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board thanked the people for their continuous support who made this distant dream of Pakistan’s premier T20 league a reality. He also asked the people to back the players who are participating in the league as they are the focal point of this league. He also praised the administrative team of PSL including the head Najam Sethi, MD Salman Sarwar Butt and the sponsors. He admitted that the league may not be profitable in the first couple of years but you can be rest assured that the league will be of great financial benefit during a span of 10 years.  

The gorgeous Sanam Saeed displayed an awe inspiring performance at the stage which was a pleasant sight for the crowd present at the stadium.

The teams also made their way to the center one by one and showed their excitement about this wonderful event. Firstly the Islamabad United came out, followed by the Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars, Peshawar Zalmi and finally Quetta Gladiators. The crowd went ecstatic when the Lahore players especially Gayle and Bravo danced around a bit for their fans.

A wave of thrill and excitement went through the crowd when the Jamaican Sean Paul rocked the event with his scintillating performance which made the players and crowd dance on his tune.

To cap off the opening ceremony the amazing and highly talented superstar from Pakistan Ali Zafar came to take the evening to new heights and amp it up a bit for the crowd present.
