Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) grand opening ceremony displayed the reverent spirit in which the sport of cricket is regarded within the country, and Twitter has something to say.

Kicking off with the national anthem, local musicians entertained the crowd with upbeat music. The PSL ceremony opened up to the country’s beloved Atif Aslam, who till date is rocking the phenomenal Jalpari like a pro. This was followed by Imran Khan’s ‘Amplifier’, which renews our belief in the fact that it remains relevant to date. Afterwards Humaima also added some dance moves wearing silk, and Naseebo Lal added a tinge of wild gold with her unbridled vocal quality.

As always, Twitter has also reacted, flooding social media with Pakistan Super League content regarding the opening game between Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United with people talking about the opening ceremony. As per some takeaways:
Atif Aslam seemed to have emerged as the King of PSL too…This country loves who it loves it seems.

But as always, we have major haters too:
The organizers should be ashamed of themselves.
The singers should apologize to the nation for the terrible lip sync. Tiktokers would have done the job better than these so called superstars.
We wait the entire year for this circus? #PSLOpeningCeremony
