Lahore: The Pakistan Junior League (PJL) received another shot in the arm as over 140 players completed their registrations for the tournament through their cricket boards as well as professional clubs and representatives.

PCB has received a great response from cricket boards all over the world who have expressed their appreciation and support for this unique concept of providing the rising stars of cricket with a global platform to showcase their talents and skills.

The South African and New Zealand cricket boards, while lending their support to PJL, were not in a position to nominate players for the first season as event dates conflict with academic examinations for eligible players.

Besides play-testing countries, PCB has also received nominations for players from Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Nepal, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Scotland, and the United Arab Emirates.

Meanwhile, through the PJL social media campaign, more than 2,500 videos were submitted by aspiring cricketers from all over Pakistan.

The inaugural edition of the English Premier League will be held at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore from 6 to 21 October.

The final list of eligible players for the project including foreign nominations will be shared prior to the draft.

PJL Tournament Director, Nadeem Khan, said: “We want to thank the cricket boards who have supported this unique concept which has the potential to redefine the young cricket scene not only in Pakistan but across the world.

“Pakistan Cricket Board is fully focused on delivering a high-quality event that will not only provide a platform for teen stars but will also inspire millions of children as well as aspiring cricketers in their early to mid-teens,” he said.
