Pakistan Junior League (PJL) OBJECTIVES

  • A young apprentice can be molded into a genius with right environment, which we intend to create in this format.
  • Initiatives like the PJL are all about creating opportunities for cricketers, identifying the talent, nurturing them into world-class players and closing the gap between domestic and international cricket.
  • The PSL has already helped Pakistan cricket soar to new heights which was evident from Pakistan reaching the finals of the T20 World Cup last year.

PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja said: “I am delighted, encouraged and motivated by the response we have received as the Pakistan Junior League’s Request for Expressions of Interest.”

“Following the success of the Pakistan Super League and the ever-improving reputation of the PCB, the potential sponsors have shown excitement and expressed their interest in the city-based Pakistan Junior League in their endeavour to play an important role in helping the PCB to create an environment of brilliance by providing a clear pathway to the talented youngsters, which, in turn, will fortify our bench-strength and produce new national stars and heroes,” he added.
