Commenting on the event Subhan Ahmad, Chief Operating Officer, PCB, said:

“Pakistan’s National Twenty20 events have proved to be immensely popular amongst the very large section of cricket-passionate public in this country. One benchmark has been that our T20 events have all been full-house affairs. Yet another satisfying aspect, amply reflected from the stands, is that families throng the matches.

“The quality and organization of PCB’s T20 events is very high. I am sure this year’s Faysal Bank Regions Twenty20 too shall be of a very high standard. Along with the PCB’s management putting in excellent work, it is also reflective of the corporate and financial support that Faysal Bank has provided in organization.

“The PCB enjoys very cordial relations with all sponsors, especially with the Faysal Bank that have backed our first class cricket”.

Aarij Ali, Head Retail, Faysal Bank reiterated the banks’ commitment to cricket and said,

“Our commitment to the promotion of cricket at the grassroots level in Pakistan is manifested in this T20 tournament: for the first time there are 17 regional teams playing in this format, and for the first time smaller and remote places like Larkana, Dera Murad Jamali and FATA are being represented. It is gratifying that our partnership with PCB continues to showcase talent from all corners of the country; many of these discovered players go on to represent Pakistan in the international arena. We look forward to seeing some exciting cricket in the next 10 days and are pleased to bring quality entertainment to all those who will be following these matches in the stadium, on television and on the social media”.
