Dubai, Nov.10 (ANI): In order to turn the two T20 matches between Pakistan and New Zealand into an unforgettable event and attract more people to the stadium to watch the encounter, sports authorities in Dubai have invited renowned Pakistani singer Abrar-ul-Haq and Strings, the famous music band, to perform at both games.
Haq will perform ahead of the first match at the Dubai Stadium on November 12, while Strings will be seen entertaining people before the second match on November 13.
Dubai Sports City's General Manager for sports business, Maqbul Dudhia said these attractions would provide viewers with a full dose of entertainment.
"Twenty20 is all about entertainment and having these top-class acts alongside some of the world's best cricketers means that the fans coming to these matches will enjoy a feast of entertainment on both nights. A ticket for the matches represents great value for money and both evenings will be very special occasions for Dubai Sports City and the UAE," The Nation quoted Dudhia, as saying.
Abrar-ul-Haq is the pioneer of bhangra music in Pakistan. Punjabi folk music has reached new heights in the country primarily due to Haq's chartbuster songs.
Strings is one of the few Pakistani band acclaimed internationally. At its inception, the band had four members, but now has only two singers Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood. (ANI)
