akistan Super League is a Twenty20 competition organized every year by the Pakistan Cricket board. The idea of the PSL emerged in 2007 during the regime of Dr Nasim Ashraf who was the chairman of PCB at that time. It took 8 eight years to settle with the plan. In 2016, the first edition of PSL came live featuring five teams from the major cities of Pakistan; Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, and Quetta.
It’s a three-week tournament scheduled between February and March of every year. Till date, five editions have been completed. Now we’ll witness the most awaited PSL6 in 2021. This is the second time the league will be hosted in Pakistan. Before, the majority of the matches were hosted in the United Arab Emirates.

PSL6 Opening Ceremony
PSL6 opening ceremony was first expected at National Stadium Karachi but due to Covid19, there’s a slight change in the plan. Now, there won’t be any live ceremony but instead, it will be pre-recorded. More details have been kept secret by the Pakistan Cricket Board so we need to wait for the right time.
Till then you can enjoy this HBL PSL6 anthem sung by Naseebo Lal, Young Stunners, and Aima Baig.
The anthem doesn’t have a splendid catch on the audience as they were expecting something bigger than “Ab Khel Jamay Ga” – the most loved PSL anthem sung by Ali Zafar.
