Glitzy opening ceremony for third installment of Pakistan Super League (PSL-3) is underway at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

The new Multan Sultans and the confirmation of a slew of global greats such as Shane Watson and Brendon McCullum has given a lift to fans eager to forget last-year's spot-fixing scandal.

The Sultans, bought by the Schon Group for $5.2 million - twice the price tag of the previous most expensive team in the franchise, the Karachi Kings - are coached by legendary Pakistani paceman Wasim Akram and skippered by Shoaib Malik.

The ceremony kicked off with national anthem of Pakistan.

Mohammad Hafeez and DJG Sammy helped defending champions Peshawar Zalmi to set a target of 152 runs in the opener of Pakistan Super League (PSL) third edition here at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

To make sure the opening ceremony is as spectacular as the tournament itself, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has invited a glut of Pakistani and global superstars to perform at the event. The final is to be held at Karachi's National Stadium on 25th of next month.

Meanwhile, hashtag #PSL2018 is trending top on twitter in Pakistan.

Zalmi, on the other hand, boasts of Hasan Ali, Tamim Iqbal, Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal and Dwayne Bravo.

Sharjeel and Khalid were charged for arranging dot balls in return for money in the opening game against Peshawar Zalmi on the first day of the second edition of the PSL.
