The much-anticipated cricket event of the country, Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) seventh edition kicked off in Karachi on Thursday.
The evening saw an amazing fireworks display at National Stadium, Karachi, where amid COVID-19 safety, the ground’s seating capacity was occupied at 25% only.
A three-minute paragliding act was also performed by three Austrian skydivers — Florian Greger, Paul Steiner, and Stefan Muller. The skydivers flew in the military Mi-17 and dived back into the Faisal Base training ground from about 5,000 feet in the air.
Prime Minister Imran Khan’s special video message for PSL teams was also played at the ceremony, which was followed by a vibrant fireworks display.
“I am opening the seventh PSL, and I hope every team fights till the last ball and entertains the public,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said in a video message.
Meanwhile, early reactions to the PSL 2022 opening ceremony have started to arrive on social media.
The ceremony has garnered some mixed reactions, for some it was the fabulous opening while for a few it was too short to enjoy.
