The innovative 10-over format of cricket is once again set to enthrall fans as the exciting Abu Dhabi T10 League is just two weeks away from commencement. While the cricketing extravaganza will surely be on another level, the tournament’s opening ceremony will feature a star-studded roster of entertainers.
Famed Pakistani singer Atif Aslam will headline the glitzy event scheduled to take place on the eve of the T10 League’s opening fixture. Expressing his excitement to perform in front of passionate cricket fans, Atif took to Twitter and called on people residing in Abu Dhabi to get ready for the dazzling ceremony.
The blockbuster pop star himself has a deep connection with the sport having been once selected to represent Pakistan’s Under-19 cricket team but he abandoned that dream to pursue a career in music.
When Sachin Tendulkar was conferred with the Bharat Ratna in 2014, Atif had written a long post depicting his happiness at seeing sportspersons getting their due share of recognition.
