Aima Baig and Trishala Gurung, an internationally renowned singers, will perform at the opening ceremony at the Multan Cricket Stadium as the competition for the title of Asian champion gets underway today with the first game between Pakistan and Nepal.
A large crowd is anticipated to flood the stadium for the opening game of the Asia Cup 2023, which will be held at the City of Saints.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) posted a message on X, formerly Twitter, saying, “Enjoy live fireworks and performances by Aima Baig and Nepal’s Trishala Gurung, followed by the opening match between Pakistan and Nepal.”
Trishala Gurung is unfamiliar to Pakistani listeners, although Aima Baig has previously performed the PSL anthems.
The multi-nation competition’s 2023 edition is taking place between August 30 and September 17 in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) refused to send their team to Pakistan owing to security concerns, hence none of the Asia Cup matches would be played there.
India and Nepal are also in Group A, along with Pakistan. Group B now consists of Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka.
There will be four games played in Pakistan and nine, including the championship game, in Sri Lanka.
