KARACHI: The stage is set for the Pakistan Super League 2018 . The much-awaited third edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) kicked off with a glittering opening ceremony at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in UAE on Thursday.

Today is the day. Pakistan Super League (PSL) that initiated in 2016 has come a long way, finally making it to Karachi this year. With cricket coming back home, the closing ceremony of PSL had to be one that wows the audiences and revive the spirit of the game that took a back seat after the attack on Sri Lankan players a few years ago.
In order to close this years’ installment, PSL released the line up of artists that are all set to perform on stage tonight. While the opening ceremony held in Dubai saw some international celebrities over the years such as Shaggy, Sean Paul and Jason Derulo, none of them will be a part of the conclusion tonight.
However, the inclusion of some of the biggest Pakistani musicians performing tonight is sure to make it up for their absence.
Wow! Karachi see you on the closing ceremony!
The evergreen Strings has been a part of Pakistani cricket for long as one can remember. From creating anthems for the team during world cup matches, Strings songs are still remembered to this day.
The dynamic duo of Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood who celebrate three decades of creating music this year, will be seen lighting up the stage tonight to close PSL 2018.
See you at 6pm at @thepsl final closing ceremony. #Strings Pakistan #psl #psl2018
