Singers Atif Aslam and Aima Baig have been roped in to sing the Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) anthem this season.
According to various media reports, the “fun and catchy” song will be composed and produced by Abdullah Siddiqui.
“Getting to produce this song is a dream for any musician. I’m thankful to the PCB to be honoured for the opportunity this year.”
“Aima Baig and Atif Aslam are the best. Working with them is an absolute privilege. I’m excited for fans to hear the product we will come up with,” he added.
“We have tried to come up with a song that captures the essence of the game in a meaningful way. I assure the listeners that the song will be very fun and catchy.”
The cash-rich league is set to begin on January 27.
The first match will be played between Multan Sultans and the Karachi Kings. Aima Baig was also featured in PSL’s song last year alongside Naseebo Lal and Young Stunners. However, it is pertinent to mention that Atif Aslam will be singing for PSL for the very first time.
Aslam, however, sang a song for the last T20 World Cup with Faris Shafi and Talal Qureshi – ‘Cricket Khidaiye’.
The announcement of the PSL anthem, like every year, triggered a debate on social media as netizens questioned Baig’s inclusion for the second consecutive time.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) shared the details on Thursday, saying Aima Baig and Atif Aslam will sing the anthem.
It merits a mention that the song will be released next week via an event partner.
As per the PCB, the song’s theme is motivational and inspirational, with the music and lyrics aimed at uplifting the mood of the nation, which is passing through testing and tough times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
