When country’s premier 20-over specialists take to the field in Multan and Rawalpindi for the high-profile National T20 Cup from September 30 to October 18, PTV Sports will be the main platform to catch all live after the participants’ health and safety forced the Pakistan Cricket Board to stage the tournament behind closed doors.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s limited-overs skipper captain Babar Azam has opined on cricket in empty stadiums. The Lahore-born, while talking to the media on Friday, shared some words.
“The game is all about the fans, they are the ones who inspire and motivate us with their presence and support during good and bad days. But the flip side in these challenging times is cricket is taking place and PTV Sports, the channel I grew up watching, will be relaying live pictures in every TV lounge to keep the fans connected and involved with the tournament that will feature country’s best players in the shortest format.” said Babar.
Babar’s Special Request to Pakistan Fans
“All I can request the fans on behalf of all competitors is to continue to support this tournament online and show the world through their positive engagement that we are one of the biggest sporting nations that loves its cricket and will back and support its players no matter what.
It is also a great opportunity for PTV Sports to maximise its viewers. PTV Sports has a strong archive of old and classic matches but by becoming a partner of the PCB, it can further strengthen itself as one of the premier sport channels through excellent and quality content.” said Babar.
