Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi on Thursday unveiled the glittery trophy of Pakistan Super League (PSL) edition 8 at a ceremony in Lahore, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
National team’s motto, artistry, recognition, and prestige were conveyed in the brand-new PSL 8 trophy, made public at an eye-catching and memorable ceremony at the historic Shalimar Gardens which was also attended by franchise owners, HBL representatives, and elite cricketers.
The 24-karat Supernova Trophy, as it will be called, has been made in Pakistan and showcases the country’s skilled craftsmanship and the Pakistan Cricket Board’s dedication to supporting local businesses.
The three pillars of the trophy, which are studded with 9,907 sparkling zircon stones, represent the national cricket team’s motto: Unity, Passion, and Strength, while the main pillar at the back is further embellished with crystals, representing dedication and hard work that has gone into ensuring the team’s success.
Najam Sethi, Chair of PCB Management Committee, said: “HBL PSL is very close to my heart and it has always been my commitment and endeavour for it to become bigger, better and stronger each year.
“With this in mind, and to also celebrate the pinnacle PCB event taking place in front of home fans, we decided to design a new trophy that encompasses our spirit as a proud nation and launch it at the Shalimar Gardens, which is a national treasure and a symbol of pride for all of us.
“The Supernova Trophy is a testament to the passion and perseverance of Pakistani people and serves as a source of inspiration for future generations of cricket players.
“The creation of this trophy was a true labour of love and, as the league continues to grow in success, the HBL PSL trophy has become a symbol of excellence and achievement, something that players and teams strive to lift and hold aloft in victory each year.
“I have no doubt this prestigious silverware will provide extra incentive and motivation to the players, which, in turn, will get the best out of them to make this year’s event most exciting, enthralling and entertaining for all the cricket fans and followers within and outside Pakistan.”
