The Pakistan Super League 6 kicked off with an opening ceremony on February 20, followed by the first match between the Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators at the National Stadium in Karachi.
The songs for the opening ceremony were already recorded in Turkey and were made part of the opening ceremony. Social media reactions to the opening ceremony were mixed, with some liking it and others disliking it. Some said it was a concert-like experience rather than a PSL opening ceremony.
But some people expressed frustration that the singers just lip synced instead of singing. The ceremony was very short and some singers performed on only parts instead of full songs.
However, public liked Atif Aslam's performance. In fact, some social media users said that Atif Aslam has brought together fans who support different teams.
Singer Imran Khan and actress Hamaima Malik were also the center of attention. Some people were even deceived by Akshay Kumar on Imran Khan. Aima Baig, Naseebo Lal and Young Stunners singers performed on PSL 6's anthem 'Grove Meera'.
Let’s have a look at what people have to say about PSL 6 opening ceremony:

I usually never criticize on PSL as I love it to death but these Adat, Amplifier songs all of sudden after the opening speeches makes no context with the league. Could have started with PSL anthem and then performances related to PSL. #PSL6 #PSLopeningceremony

Another day and I can't understand why do people/brands pay millions of rupees to singers just to lip-sync their famous songs.
Isn't it supposed to be a "LIVE" performance?#PSLopeningceremony
