Even though the matches were restricted to Karachi, people from around Pakistan would be gathering up in huge crowds inside the stadium to create the most amazing of atmospheres! Many of the 40 foreign players to play the upcoming matches — led by former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson, current New Zealand opener Colin Munro and West Indian stars Dwayne Bravo, Darren Sammy and Kieron Pollard — arrived in Karachi on Friday to join the six-team competition.

In a special video message for fans, Wayne Madsen of “yellow storm” Peshawar Zalmi said: “I am really excited to head to Karachi and in particular looking forward to the Karachi biryani. Looking forward to playing in front of a packed house at the National Stadium in Karachi and bringing home the trophy for the yellow storm.”

Tymal Mills from the same side also expressed his excitement to be coming to Karachi, in a video message shot a week prior.

“I am looking forward to playing in front of a packed crowd. Last year I experienced Lahore. This year, I’m sure Karachi will be even better. And whilst I’m there I might even try some of the famous Karachi biryani. Cheers guys. See you there,” he said.

England’s Liam Dawson, part of the Peshawar team, said he looks forward to playing before passionate crowds.

“I toured Pakistan last year and the atmosphere was unbelievable. We played three games and the crowd was electric,” he recalled.

“It will be the same this time as well and I am happy to be part of that cricket revival.”

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani said the matches will help improve the country’s chances of reviving international cricket.

“I am delighted to welcome the foreign players who have come here for the PSL and I am sure it will help us in bringing more international matches to the country,” said Mani.

Under the circumstances the country has witnessed in the past month, arrival of PSL in Pakistan would definitely be an amazing way to forget their political worries and unite to enjoy Pakistan’s biggest Cricket League!
