PTV Sports Live HBL PSL 2018 Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal failed to fire in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) opener for holders Peshawar Zalmi against Multan Sultans at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium yesterday.

Responding over a question, Raja said that batting is the weak link in Pakistani national team, and he wants to see new talented batsman entering in the national squad via PSL.

The first match will be played between defending champions Peshawar Zalmi and new franchise Multan Sultans at 10pm tonight (Pakistan time).

Earlier, PSL kicked off with a glitzy opening ceremony.


But a dramatic improvement in security saw officials stage the PSL final in Lahore previous year, its biggest match in almost a decade, a move which boosted hopes the cricket-obsessed country could become an global venue once more.

To make sure the opening ceremony is as spectacular as the tournament itself, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has invited a glut of Pakistani and worldwide superstars to perform at the event. "InshaAllah, very soon we will have the entire tournament being held in Pakistan with cities like Multan, Peshawar and Pindi hosting games along with Lahore and Karachi", said Sethi.

Meanwhile, hashtag #PSL2018 is trending top on twitter in Pakistan.

Both Tamim and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan played for Zalmi last season. Last year, 24 matches happened, this year there will be 34.
