PCB names franchises of Pakistan Junior League

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) earlier announced a PSL-like competition for U-19 cricket players, which is now a reality under the name Pakistan Junior League, the maiden edition of which will be contested in Lahore from October

PJL 2022 is creating hype before it’s happening, and the fans are excited to witness some quality cricketing action and young talent coming in. With the things being under the finalization process, the PCB still had been looking for the teams, and that maze is now solved either.

PCB names possible franchises of Pakistan Junior League

The board took it to Twitter and mentioned 12 probable cities, out of which only six will feature as franchises of Pakistan Junior League’s first edition. Since it was announced that PJL 2022 would be a six-team tournament, the PCB clarified it in the post as well.

The possible franchises might be Abbottabad, Bahawalpur, Gwadar, Gujranwala, Hyderabad, Mardan, Muzaffarabad, Rahim Yar Khan, Rawalpindi, Sialkot, Sukkur, and Ziarat.

The interested parties are required to contact the board on the given email in the above post in a bid to own a franchise.

In other recent developments, the PCB has roped in South Africa’s Imran Tahir and New Zealand’s Colin Munro as the league’s mentors. The six-member mentor team will be revealed in a short course as soon as the sixth member joins the five named earlier.

Apart from Tahir and Munro, Shahid Afridi and Darren Sammy are the other two mentors. The mentor panel will be charged by former Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad overall.
