Babar Azam, Imad Waseem, Tabish khan, Saifullah Bangash, Hasan Mohsin and other players of Karachi Kings were there to grace and add star power to the event.
When Captain Imad Waseem was asked how he intends to manage Shahid Afridi, he accurately replied that “We all are professional players, and so is Shahid Afridi. He knows his responsibilities well, and that makes my job easier.” He further said that “We will give our best and try hardest to win but we cannot guarantee to win the trophy. What we can guarantee is to give the toughest competition to all competing teams.”
We asked Babar Azam about his preparations for PSL 2018. He replied that” We are continuing our last year’s rigorous exercises and team building routines with some changes.” When asked that he is Lahore born but plays from Karachi, which team does his family support? He laughingly replied that, “whichever team I am playing, my family supports them.”
A. Mannan, President, and CEO, TCS Holdings (Pvt.) Ltd and Salman Iqbal, Owner Karachi Kings signed the agreement that Yayvo.com will be the official merchandise partner of Karachi Kings. It was further announced that TCS Hazir will deliver Karachi Kings merchandise in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and Rawalpindi within 120 minutes.
President and CEO TCS Holdings, M. A. Mannan said, “We thank PCB and Karachi Kings for placing its trust in our ability to manage a delicate task. We were aware of the issues that cricket fans had to face in the recent past to get tickets and made sure to provide them relief. TCS has always taken challenging tasks head-on in the past and will continue to do so in the future as well.”
Expressing his views about the partnership, Owner Karachi Kings Salman Iqbal said, “We are excited to be a part of this initiative. Karachi Kings is Karachi’s very own team, and I am positive that they will reach the finals this time.” He also shared his big plans for this season of PSL as the final is scheduled to be played in Karachi.
Tariq Wasi, CEO, Karachi Kings, lauded the efforts of Yayvo.com in multiplying the joy and excitement of PSL by joining hands with Karachi Kings as its official partner.
Singer Shehzad Roy introduced the new song of Karachi Kings. He expressed that he feels honoured to compose the anthem for Karachi Kings two years in a row. According to him,” He has a natural alliance with Karachi because he was born and brought up here. This year Salman took a huge interest in the composition of the Karachi King’s anthem. He asked me to compose a song about Karachi because it is the heart of Pakistan and has the immense ability to welcome people from every part of the country. Another interesting thing about this song is that Shahid Afridi will be adding his vocals for the first time to a song. I had a great time working with Shahid Afridi, Imad Waseem and Babar Azam.”
Actors Humayun Saeed, Faisal Qureshi, anchors Waseem Badami and Iqrar Ul Hassan who are the brand ambassadors of Karachi Kings, were also present at the conference.
