Pakistan Super League is going on in full force. As the tournament progresses, the 5 franchises are entertaining the world with their unique performances. But this year, PSL franchise Peshawar Zalmi has once again proven that this tournament is more than just cricket.
Continuing their tradition from last year, the Zalmi’s have teamed up with Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital Lahore to bring in as many as 19 cancer patients to enjoy the matches live in Dubai.
Last year, the team flew students from the Army Public School who were the survivors of the deadly terrorist attack in 2014. The cancer patients, aged 10 to 20 were flown to Dubai to watch the opening ceremony as well as matches from PSL.
