DUBAI: Around 13 young patients under treatment at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital arrived in Dubai earlier today to witness the Pakistan Super League (PSL) opening ceremony and matches, as part of defending champions Peshawar Zalmi’s #BringingBackSmiles initiative.
The kids were flown in on Peshawar Zalmi chairman Javed Afridi’s invitation, as the franchise continued its tradition from last year of inviting the young patients to watch the PSL action.
“These brave kids are very close to my heart and they deserve to be happy just like other kids do. Peshawar Zalmi will perform to the best of its abilities on the field in order to make them smile off it,” tweeted Javed Afridi.
The excited kids posed for photos upon arrival in Dubai.
