Young musician Abdullah Siddiqui has composed this year's Pakistan Super League (PSL) official anthem.

For a second consecutive year, Siddiqui will be making the PSL anthem as last year he, alongside Atif Aslam and Aima Baig, composed PSL 7 anthem named "Agay Dekh".

As confirmed by the PSL on its official account, Asim Azhar and Shae Gill will sing this year's anthem. The third singer is Faris Shafi who will give a rap touch to the song.

Previously, Ali Sethi, son of current Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) head Najam Sethi, was roped in to sing PSL 8 song. The makers of Pasoori were set to make this year's anthem. But, Najam, a two-time former PCB chairman, decided to revoke the contract involving his son to avoid a conflict of interest.

Ali and Shae sang Pasoori in Coke Studio season 14 which gained massive popularity worldwide. Under former PCB chairman Ramiz Raja, the Pasoori team was hired to produce the anthem.

Last year's anthem, also produced by Abdullah, garnered over 10 million views on YouTube.

PSL 8 will be played from February 13 to March 19 in Karachi, Multan, Lahore, and Rawalpindi.

Multan will be hosting PSL's opening ceremony and match for the first time in its history. Home side Multan Sultans will take on defending champions Lahore Qalandars on February 13. Karachi will host its first match on February 14 between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi.
