PSL ‘Spirit Trophy’ unveiling ceremony today

PSL

DUBAI: The trophy unveiling ceremony of the second edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) will be held in Dubai on Monday (today). President of PSL’s Governing Council Najam Sethi and captains and owners of all five franchises – Karachi Kings, Islamabad United, Quetta Gladiators, Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars – will be present in the colourful ceremony. The PSL second edition trophy is manufactured by Swarovski company and is named ‘Spirit Trophy’. The ‘Spirit Trophy’ dazzles with the innovative crystal fine rocks – a product made using over 50,000 double pointed crystals. Sitting on the pinnacle is the Shooting Star, a multi-faceted crystal sculpture made with precision cut technology. From approval to final product, the trophy has taken a total of four months to make from the renderings and mock ups to the final product. “The ‘Spirit Trophy’ celebrates the patriotism of a nation. Taking its inspiration from the brilliance of the universe — the trophy’s central core resembles the galaxy of stars with a shooting star rising above and a golden crescent behind it. “This trophy binds Pakistan’s hopes and aspirations with HBL PSL’s vision of cricket by bringing together established players and new talent under one banner,” said a Pakistan Cricket Board statement. The tournament will kick off on 9th February as defending champions Islamabad United will take on Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai following the opening ceremony. Karachi Kings will play its first match against Peshawar Zalmi on February 10.
