After a successful Twenty20 tournament held in Lahore last year, PCB and ABN Amro are again organizing the tournament and this time it will be held in Karachi. The tournament will kick off from tomorrow, Friday, February 24, 2006 and the first match will be played at National Stadium and the final will be held on March 04th at the same ground.
Kudos to PCB for recognizing the need for organizing matches for the cricket starved public of Karachi. With no entry fee and the participation of the stars from the national cricket team, I am sure the cricket loving people of Karachi will throng to the stadium and have a rollicking time. If you still aren’t convinced, here is a list of players that will be playing:
Rana Navedul Hasan
Rao Iftikhar Anjum
I don’t know whether the organizers will be providing live scores over the net or not. Last year, a website was setup for this purpose called National Cricket Pakistan. However, as yet, it is still showing the details about last year’s tournament. Let’s hope that the interest of organizers isn’t fading in just one year.
