Chairman PCB Ehsan Mani said, “The release of the anthem officially launches our marketing campaign for the HBL Pakistan Super League 2020. Tayyar Hain nicely sums up the mood of the Pakistan cricket fans who are seen embracing, rejoicing and celebrating to welcome the league to Pakistan at the back of home international matches.”
“What pleases me more is all the key stakeholders tonight stand firmly behind this league and I have now no doubts that this year’s event will set new benchmarks and standards. I am confident that the collective approach I am seeing tonight will translate into providing unique experience to the fans in a high-pressure tournament in which every match will count.”
“I want to congratulate the PCB team for their hard work in putting this together and hope they will continue to work with the same zeal and passion until the final ball is bowled on 22 March at the Gaddafi Stadium.”
CEO of Lahore Qalandars Atif Rana said, “Tayyar Hain is sizzling and I have no doubt this will become one of the most popular numbers in the coming days. The league is evolving and we are improving and getting better with each event, and tonight’s event establishes this fact as all key stakeholders are celebrating the hosting of the event in Pakistan.”
Owner of Peshawar Zalmi Javed Afridi said, “This is Pakistan’s league and we stand firmly with the PCB to make it a huge success. Tayyar Hain correctly captures the mood in Pakistan and there is no doubt it is for everyone to celebrate as this has been a phenomenal year for Pakistan cricket with the return of Test cricket. A strong Pakistan cricket means a strong HBL PSL, which, in turn, means stronger teams, top notch cricket in front of packed houses.”

It is wonderful that all stakeholders have gathered under one roof to celebrate the homecoming of one of the premier competitions. Tayyar Hain is the perfect anthem for PSL V. The music, lyrics and videography are from the top drawer. After listening to Tayyar Hain, I can’t wait for the HBL PSL 2020 to begin.”
Owner of Quetta Gladiators Nadeem Omar said, “Tayyar Hain perfectly encapsulates the Pakistani flavour and makes one excited for the HBL PSL and cricket in general. Every HBL PSL 5 anthem has been better than its predecessor and this one has set a new benchmark. The presence of the cricketing stars is bound to make the fans watch it again and again.”
Owner of Islamabad United Ali Naqvi said, “It is one of those compositions which reinvigorate entire stadiums. I could feel that energy in me when I first heard it. Tayyar Hain is definitely going in my playlist. HBL PSL has evolved into a profound brand since its launch and I am hopeful that its popularity will grow manifold.”
Owner of Karachi Salman Iqbal Kings said, “Tayyar Hain is a true reflection of the diverse Pakistani culture. I am pretty sure that soon this anthem will be blasting out of every car from Shahra-e-Faisal to the Abdul Sattar Edhi road. I thoroughly enjoyed the music composition and its lyrics, and like the HBL PSL, they were full of zeal.”
Chief Marketing Officer of HBL Naveed Asghar said, “HBL has been the lead sponsor for the Pakistan Super League since its inception. I take pride in saying that HBLPSL has not only become the single largest sporting event in the country, but also the most loved and eagerly awaited platform. We continue to partner with PCB to make this platform bigger and better every year and the official anthem is an integral part of this celebration.
