On Thursday, in a ceremony that drew a lot of attention, the glittering trophy for the eighth season of the Pakistan Super League was presented to the public for the first time at the historic Shalimar Gardens.
The new PSL8 Trophy, named the ’24-karat Supernova Trophy’, was unveiled by the Chair of the PCB Management Committee, Mr. Najam Sethi, in the presence of franchise owners, HBL representatives, and elite cricketers.
Shoaib Malik, the star all-rounder for the Karachi Kings, and Shan Masood, the player for the Multan Sultans, were both present at the event.
According to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the trophy is crafted in Pakistan and is a demonstration of the country’s highly skilled artisans as well as the PCB’s commitment to assisting the nation’s small and medium-sized businesses.
The national cricket team’s motto is “Unity, Passion, and Strength,” which is represented by the trophy’s three pillars, each of which is adorned with 9,907 sparkling zircon stones. The main pillar at the back of the PSL8 trophy is further embellished with crystals, which represents the dedication and hard work that has gone into ensuring the success of the team.
From the 13th of February until the 19th of March, the upcoming season of the PSL will be played at a total of four different locations. The matches for Multan and Karachi will be played from the 13th to the 26th of February. After that, the action will move to Lahore and Rawalpindi, where the remaining 20 matches will be played from the 26th to the 19th of March.
