Friday’s inaugural meeting of the Committee was presided over by Najam Sethi, who was recently appointed Chairman of the Management Committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

After receiving a thorough briefing on the HBL Pakistan Super League 8, which is slated to take place from 13 February to 19 March, the Management Committee decided to include Quetta as the tournament’s fifth venue.

The Committee decided that PCB would work closely with the local administration to upgrade and renovate Bugti Stadium to make sure it is ready to host the HBL PSL 8 matches. Separate discussions would also take place between PCB security experts and local authorities to ensure the safety and security of all participants, officials, and spectators.

Najam Sethi said: “I am delighted that seven years after launching the HBL Pakistan Super League, I am today announcing our commitment to add Bugti Stadium in Quetta as the fifth venue for our marquee event. Bugti Stadium is the home ground of Quetta Gladiators and we still remember the incredible scenes when the Gladiators visited the city after winning the 2019 tournament.

“The passionate cricket fans of Quetta have been waiting for a long to watch high-profile cricket in their backyard and I am pleased that we will now bring HBL PSL matches to their doors. In this relation, I have already spoken with influential officials in the Balochistan province, who have assured me of their complete support from event delivery perspectives.”

The Committee also discussed Peshawar as a potential location for hosting HBL PSL and international matches, and it was decided that matches would be held there provided there were no restrictions placed by the provincial and federal governments and the stadium had facilities of an international standard for cricket, broadcast, spectators, and media.

The Women’s League was also the subject of the first deliberations by the Management Committee; further conversations will follow. The Management Committee decided to let the Pakistan Cup conclude on January 3 in the best interest of the participants and event after discussing the domestic cricket structure under the 2014 PCB Constitution.

It was decided that Najam Sethi, Shakil Sheikh, and Haroon Rashid would develop the early draft of the domestic structure, which corresponds to the PCB Constitution 2014 and share it with the Committee for further debate.

Last year, news broke about Syra Yousuf and Shahroz Sabzwari, a former couple, co-starring in a film. While some fans were thrilled, others questioned whether the movie would ever be released given how the two later broke up. A feel-good love story, Babylicious, is expected to be released on Valentine’s Day.

Sabzwari took to his Instagram on Thursday with a monochrome poster of the film that sees the pair in an embrace. “Yes, guys. It’s releasing. We were just waiting for Valentine’s to come around,” he wrote.

Syra also shared the news of their film on social media and revealed that Babylicious took 12 years to complete. She wrote, “This February 2023, it will be 12 years since we became attached to this film. So very excited for you all to see it! Presenting the first look of our new movie BABYLICIOUS.”

Syra Yousuf and Shahroze Sabzwari play the key characters in Essa Khan’s film Babylicious. They will portray the love interests of one another. The director gave a hint regarding the plot of the movie, saying that it is a love story about “getting your ex back.”

When they were not divorced, both were chosen for this movie. Syra exhibited her professionalism and continued to film the movie until the very end even though she and her ex-husband Shahroz had recently divorced.

On Google’s hum to search top songs list, “Pasoori” has surpassed hugely successful bands like BTS, Imagine Dragons, and the Backstreet Boys. This year, Google released lists of the top trends. Next on the list were “Butter,” “Chaand Baaliyan,” and “Heat Waves.”

Pasoori also made it to the list of most searched songs, ranking second after the Indonesian pop song ‘Tak Ingin Usai’ by Keisya Levronka.

Coke Studio producer Xulfi celebrated the accomplishment on Instagram. “Can’t thank the universe enough. Just can’t. And can’t thank all of you, the people, enough too,” he wrote. “Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for giving us your love, your attention, and your kindness that made our, your Coke Studio’s ‘Pasoori’ the most Googled song in the world in 2022.”

Commenting on the songs ‘Pasoori’ overtook, he said, “Surreal knowing that BTS is second in the list. It’s a music act we researched before the season. And then Imagine Dragons, one of my favourite music acts, is on the list too. Just unbelievable. Congratulations team.”

Abdullah Siddiqui, an associate producer for Coke Studio season 14, also expressed his appreciation for the success of the hit song.

Singers of “Pasoori,” Ali Sethi and Shae Gill, also announced the news on Instagram. So grateful, Shae Gill commented.

The song “Pasoori” was released in February and became a fan favourite right away. Its popularity has since expanded outside of Pakistan as well. It is well-liked in India, has a Coke Studio Africa remix collaboration with Nigerian Afrobeats, and presently has 457 million YouTube views.

Modern smartwatches are better than ever. They now serve as a full-featured digital wallet, health and fitness tracker, and an extension of your smartphone, even when it is far away.

In fact, modern smartwatches even have the potential to save lives. Many of them offer features like heart rate monitoring, elevation detection, and automated emergency service connection in case of a fall. Some models also offer blood oxygen (SpO2) and electrocardiogram (ECG) measurements as extras.

The top smartwatches go above and beyond, containing a wide range of features and apps in addition to having a battery life that lasts for well over a week. Check out our top selections below after we researched dozens of the best smartwatches to see which ones would work best for different user types.

Apple Watch Series 8

The Apple Watch 8 is the most advanced model thus far. In terms of functions, it isn’t a significant improvement over the Apple Watch Series 7, but it does have a better design and a bigger screen. The skin temperature sensor, which can help with cycle and fertility tracking as well as sleep tracking, is something new in the Apple Watch Series 8 compared to the Series 7 model. The long-awaited low-power mode, which can increase the current Apple Watch’s battery life to 36 hours, was also included in the Series 8’s debut. Additionally, the Apple Watch 8 has a new crash detection capability that makes use of better motion sensors to provide immediate assistance when you may need it most.

The Apple Watch Series 8 is a fully functional health tracker and communications device otherwise. This wristwatch contains watchOS 9, which has the newest and best features the Apple Watch experience has to offer. This is the finest smartwatch for you whether you want to use it for exercising, taking calls on the go, or using the top Apple Watch apps. Obviously, if you have an iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

Samsung is obviously not content to watch while Apple keeps updating and enhancing the Apple Watch. With a longer battery life than the Apple Watch, Samsung’s most recent Galaxy Watch 5 Pro delivers many of the same cutting-edge health tracking functions, including blood oxygen monitoring, ECG, and sleep tracking.

The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro now has a skin temperature sensor, body composition readings, and other features that are generally found in high-end GPS sports watches that cost twice as much as the Watch 5 Pro. Samsung-powered Google Wear OS 3 is used by the Watch 5 Pro. This indicates that although it supports Google Assistant, Google Maps, Google Wallet, Google Play Store, and other Google apps, it still has the appearance of a Samsung smartwatch.

Its operating system has been tailored to the watch’s rounded shape and simulated revolving bezel. The watch features fall detection, texting, phone calls, and other features. It also supports sophisticated fitness statistics like VO2 Max and advanced running dynamics data.

Fitbit Sense

The Fitbit ecosystem is strong, with a large user base to encourage you to meet your daily activity and fitness targets. The watch data is analyzed by the smartphone app, which is great and provides a tonne of information, recommendations, and insight. These new Fitbit watches perform most functions well with both Android and iOS, while Android smartphone owners benefit more from support for rapid text message answers.

The Fitbit Sense incorporates extra sensors on the rear and a stainless-steel ring around the watch face to enable advanced health metrics like ECG and skin temperature. You can purchase the Fitbit Versa 3 and forego some sophisticated wellness measures if you want to save $70.

The embedded GPS receiver in this watch, which will enable you to track your outside activities more precisely, is a considerable upgrade over prior Fitbit watches.

Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra GPS

Aiming to appeal to owners of Samsung phones, Google and Samsung have teamed up to provide Samsung with exceptional timepieces. For owners of other Android smartphones and iPhones, there are Google Wear OS watches available. The second Mobvoi model to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform is the TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra GPS, which is the brand’s most recent timepiece.

The TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra GPS is among the greatest Wear OS watches now on the market. It sports a novel layered display design that layers an LCD display on top of an AMOLED display to provide users with a longer battery life. The watch has a massive 577 mAh battery and is built to withstand the elements with IP68 and MIL-STD-810G durability ratings. 

Wear OS is a very capable wearable platform, even though it does not have the same level of support as the Apple Watch. It offers a large selection of watch faces, a tonne of well-known third-party apps, voice support for Google Assistant, advanced health tracking, and stress tracking. The TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra GPS is a very powerful GPS sports watch that contains all the most recent sophisticated health indicators, including blood oxygen monitoring.

Apple Watch SE

The Apple Watch SE is a hybrid gadget that combines an older Apple Watch design with the processor from the Apple Watch Series 8. Despite not having all the features of the Series 8, the $249 wristwatch stands out for its excellent fitness tracking and safety features. It is a wonderful alternative for individuals looking to test out Family Setup because it also has an LTE option.

Your final decision will depend on whether you want to spend an extra $150 for a brighter display with an always-on option, an ECG monitor and skin-temperature sensor, and a bigger display when deciding between the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE (2022). The SE is a very capable option for iPhone owners if those tools aren’t a deal-breaker for you. Even watchOS 9, the most recent version of the Apple Watch operating system, is included. It features a low-power mode, brand-new watch faces, an improved workout interface, a new compass function, and a new Medications app. Even watchOS 9, the most recent version of the Apple Watch operating system, is included.

A virus has reportedly afflicted 14 team members, including eight players, ahead of the first Test against Pakistan in Rawalpindi, dealing a severe blow to the English cricket team.

Tomorrow (December 1), England will play the first Test in Pakistan for the first time in 17 years.

Ben Stokes, the captain of England, as well as other squad members and officials, were reportedly impacted by the virus, according to a BBC report.

‘On the eve of the first Test against Pakistan in Rawalpindi, the England squad, including captain Ben Stokes, has been struck by a virus,’ the report added.

The traveling team of players and coaches received a recommendation to relax at the hotel on Wednesday for about 14 people.

Only five people participated in an optional training session, out of a total playing squad of 16.

The only players who showed up for today’s optional training session were Harry Brook, Zak Crawley, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope, and Joe Root, according to a brief statement from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

Following the first match in Rawalpindi, the second Test will be played in Multan beginning on Friday, December 9, and the last Test of the trip will begin on Saturday, December 17 at the National Stadium in Karachi.

Tell us about your journey. How did you decide to pursue a career in music?

Since childhood I used to participate in every function in school college and always won. Everyone at our house was very fond of music especially Madam Noor Jahan, Abida Parveen ji and Reshma ji. I grew up listening to their songs and felt a strong connection whenever I listened to them.

What are your hobbies outside of singing?

I was very artistic since childhood. There is no artist in my family other than me. As a child I was very fond of painting. I love cooking, gardening and traveling, especially up to the northern regions of Pakistan. I like to explore the world. I want to know everything, I am curious whether it is history or science.

Has your perception of the entertainment industry in Pakistan changed in any way? Would you like to share your experience?

I have been in the industry for 10 years and I don’t think anything has changed for women here. Today A woman still has to work as hard as she used to in the past. This is not only about the industry but about the whole world. A lot of educated people are coming into the industry but there is no change. If we talk about music, the music industry is going a long way undoubtedly.

Did you have any trouble with your parents when you decided to pursue music as a career?

I believe that artists all over the world are chosen by Allah and I feel very blessed that Allah has chosen me and the most beautiful thing about being an artist is that I connect with my audience. Being an artist I consider myself very close to Allah.

What’s your favourite part about being a musician?

My mother belongs to the medical field and she did not want me to take up music at all because I am from Nankana Sahib, famous for Baba Guru Nanak. People there do not know anything about the media industry. I did not go home for two years and stayed in the hostel. Gradually, when my mother saw my progress, saw my studio and now my mother is my biggest fan.

Name any 3 music icons.

There are so many legends in Pakistan’s media industry whose work we listen now and forever because of which it will be difficult to choose three, but if I have to choose only three then Madam Noor Jahan, Reshma Ji and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahib.

What was your inspiration behind new album?

Whenever I do anything related to music, I really connect with the audience by putting myself to their place and thinking about what they are thinking and feeling. The audience is my inspiration. Four songs have been composed in different music Sufi and folk.

Any advice you have for aspiring musicians?

Whenever I go for an interview or as a judge in a music competition, I always advise them that art does not need a platform, if you are talented, learn to believe in yourself and your talent. If you have talent, it doesn’t mean you should be overconfident because learning is very important. If one wants to make a career in music, respect your seniors a lot because success will follow anyone who respects his seniors.

Zakir Naik has been invited by Qatar to share the gospel of Islam during the FIFA World Cup in 2022. Throughout the World Cup, he will preach and educate in addition to publishing multiple pieces on social media.

“Preacher Sheikh Zakir Naik is in Qatar for the World Cup and will deliver numerous religious talks during the competition.” In Qatar’s sports anchor Faisal Alhajri’s words. Additionally, a photo of Dr. Zakir Naik being welcomed in Qatar went viral on social media.

Apparently, Qatar is using the FIFA World Cup 2022 as a chance to spread Islam and its culture to the western world.

Verse readings from the Holy Quran began the FIFA World Cup 2022 ceremony. This has never occurred before in the history of a football world championship, according to football enthusiasts. The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar, the first Arab and Middle Eastern nation to do so.

The Qatari government is hosting Islamic exhibitions to increase awareness of Islam. The muezzins of mosques were replaced by people who had lovely vocals. For Azan, stadiums are equipped with microphones.

Murals carrying sayings of the Holy Prophet on mercy, charity, and good deeds have been placed all over the streets in Qatar. “Every good deed is a charity”, “He who is not merciful to others, will not be treated mercifully”, and “Guard yourself against the Hellfire, even with half of a date in charity. If one cannot find it, then with a kind word” were some of the Prophetic hadiths shared. Pictures of the murals are going viral on social media.
