Islamabad: Zong, the official telecom partner of Pakistan Super League (PSL) in yet another strategic move recently surprised its international roamers by providing them the first of its kind offer to watch Pakistan Super League while in Dubai absolutely free.
PSL is the most prolific Pakistani cricketing events ever and owing to the success of the event Zong decided to give out Free tickets to 20 of its international roaming subscribers in Dubai.
Commenting on this occasion, Babar Bajwa, Zong’s Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) spoke out proudly. “Needless to say Pakistani’s are a cricket loving nation. The overwhelming and full of life response Pakistanis have given to PSL has added more colour to this event. PSL is a household name these days, not only in Pakistan but other parts of the world where cricket lovers exist. Since the event is being hosted outside Pakistan each of the winners are excited to have been chosen to avail this opportunity.”
Mr Bajwa added, “What else could a diehard cricket fan want and that too an absolutely free entry to the PSL matches. It would be like a dream coming true for 20 ardent cricket lovers and they will remember Zong for offering them this precious gift.” Zong, Pakistan’s only 3G and 4G services provider, has officially partnered with the PSL with an aim to resuscitate the otherwise dead cricketing scenario in Pakistan that hit rock bottom in recent times. While some other telecom companies are sponsoring individual PSL teams, Zong partnered with PCB to promote cricket, adopting a much broader and holistic approach.
Cricket stars of world fame from different countries are featuring in PSL that started on February 4 in Dubai. The cricket lovers are anxiously watching nerve-wrecking and nail-biting action between five super teams; Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars, Islamabad United, Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators. Pakistan’s ace cricketing giants Shoaib Malik, Azhar Ali, Misbahul Haq, Shahid Afridi and Sarfraz Ahmed are respectively heading these teams. Kevin Pietersen, Chris Gayle, Tamim Iqbal, Dwane Bravo, Darren Sammy, Shane Watson and others are among top international players who are an active part in the league. The final match would be played on February 23.
