Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Multan Sultans has embarked on various initiatives aimed at uplifting the status of grassroots cricket in Pakistan. Having an immensely positive impact at polishing the skills of young undiscovered players, this time around the lucrative PSL franchise is sponsoring the noted Last Man Stands (LMC) Capital Championship in Islamabad.
In an era of innovation, the LMS form of cricket has embellished T20 cricket, by introducing pink ball into the equation and it boasts 8 player-a-side competing in the middle. The LMS Capital Championship will thus be another exciting cricketing tournament for fans to savor their thirst for the sport.
It will be conducted in Islamabad from 20th to 22nd April, with several well-known figures from the field of cricket and politics taking the center stage. 6 teams will be representing their districts across Pakistan, namely Lodhran, Lahore, Faisalabad, Attock, Sialkot and hosts Islamabad.
Interestingly, Sultans co-owner Ali Khan Tareen will be captaining the Lodhran team while government minister Zulfi Bukhari has acquired the Attock team, and will be enjoying the action on the sidelines.
A festival of cricket and entertainment of the highest, the winner of this 6-team competition will be heading to Sydney later this year to play in the LMS World Championship.
