On its social media accounts, the Pakistan Cricket Board posted a video message from Naseem Shah in which he said that Lahore residents always support cricket.
According to Naseem Shah, a large number of people visit Lahore during the Pakistan Super League, while more people visit the stadium during foreign matches.

Both teams will practise at the Gaddafi Stadium today in preparation for their first Twenty20 encounter, which is set to take place in Lahore tomorrow.
