Babar Hamid, the PCB Commercial Director and Head of HBL PSL, said on Tuesday : “The PCB and the HBL Pakistan Super League have always endeavoured to explore partnerships and collaborations that can help engage with our fans all around the world.
“TikTok is one of the most popular platforms these days and it has taken the world by a storm which makes this partnership very exciting for us. Pakistan has a big TikTok following and majority of the followers are passionate about cricket. The popularity of the HBL PSL can be gauged by the overwhelming response that our HBL PSL 6 anthem Groove Mera received on TikTok.

Our entire staff along with the franchises and all stakeholders have worked really hard and I am sure the efforts will be rewarded with quality cricket action at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.”
With TikTok being a platform for the masses, this collaboration will help the HBL PSL not only reach a young audience but also engage more authentically with a very interactive and diverse community that has backed the league from the onset, helping it become one of the most popular and sought after T20 leagues in the world.
