LAHORE: The Pakistan Super League (PSL) management Sunday announced that the trophy for the HBL PSL 2017 edition will be unveiled at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on February 6.
Captains of the five participating teams, Chairman PSL Najam Sethi, franchise owners and management would be present on the occasion.
Sethi and the five captains will apprise about the tournament, their preparations and build-up.
The PSL second edition trophy is manufactured by Swarovski company and is named ‘Spirit Trophy’.
The ‘Spirit Trophy’ dazzles with the innovative crystal fine rocks — a product made using over 50,000 double pointed crystals. Sitting on the pinnacle is the Shooting Star, a multi-faceted crystal sculpture made with precision cut technology.
From approval to final product, the trophy has taken a total of four months to make from the renderings and mock ups to the final product.
“The ‘Spirit Trophy’ celebrates the patriotism of a nation. Taking its inspiration from the brilliance of the universe — the trophy’s central core resembles the galaxy of stars with a shooting star rising above and a golden crescent behind it.
“This trophy binds Pakistan’s hopes and aspirations with HBL PSL’s vision of cricket by bringing together established players and new talent under one banner,” said a Pakistan Cricket Board statement.
