DSport will telecast the latest edition of the Pakistan Super League that begins from Thursday and will be played in Dubai. Three of the four playoff games will be played in Pakistan with two matches at Lahore's Gadaffi Stadium and the final in Karachi on March 25.

Launched in 2016 after years of deliberation, the PSL is an annual T20 league which sees six city-based franchises fight amongst each other for the title.

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.

The ceremony kicked off with national anthem of Pakistan.
