We want to bring international cricket back to Pakistan and at the same time groom future champions that will make us all proud.”“A lot of untapped potential in Pakistan is not able to get the right opportunities to achieve their dreams. ‘Jazz Rising Stars’ is their opportunity to prove their mettle by getting selected to train and play at the international level. This initiative is a step forward in grooming and nurturing talent, which is the need of the hour and I am extremely proud that Jazz and Lahore Qalandars are taking this step together,” added ShahbazMaqsood Khan, Director Marketing – Mobilink.“As a team, our primary aim obviously is to win for the fans, but we also have this secondary focus on positively impacting the local cricketing environment. The Jazz Rising Stars initiative has been envisioned to do just that.By launching the first ever career oriented talent hunt, we are looking to develop the next generation of cricketers, who will not only bolster the ranks of Lahore Qalandars, but hopefully, also go on to represent the national team,” said Fawad Rana, Chairman-Lahore Qalandars.Lahore Qalandars, has signed a contract with Big Bash League (BBL) franchise ‘Sydney Thunder’, which will allow the two to exchange academy facilities, training staff, and emerging players. The contract allows Lahore Qalandars’ emerging players to use Thunder’s facilities. AqibJaved, Director of Cricket Operations – Lahore Qalandars, said, “I am excited to see whether the talent we find is capable of adapting to the challenge being put before them. It will not be easy and the applicants will have to push themselves harder than they have everdone before. Some will rise and some will fall, but I hope the two that emerge justify our trust in them.”‘The Jazz Rising Stars’will be divided in to three stages and targets eight major cities of Punjab, namely, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Sargodha, Multan, Bahawalpur and Dera Ghazi Khan.During the first stage, a talent hunt will be conducted in each of the eight cities.
