The Pakistan contingent of the commentators include former Pakistan cricketers Bazid Khan, Marina Iqbal, Sana Mir, Urooj Mumtaz and Waqar Younis, along with Tariq Saeed, the pioneer of Urdu commentary.
The action will be called in both English and Urdu languages to bring both international and local audiences closer to action. Thirty High-Definition cameras along with buggy and drone cameras will embellish the viewing experience of the fans of the league in Pakistan and around the world.
