JAZZ RISING STARS CRICKET TALENT HUNT CONCLUDES IN FIVE METROS

Jazz Rising stars, the award winning movement that showcased
Pakistan’s cricketing talent to the world, recently completed 5 city trials for its second season. These
trials were held in Mirpur, Muzaffarabad, Rawalpindi, Sargodha and Layyah. Under this cricket talent
hunt, the first city team of the tournament was selected in the shape of Muzaffarabad, while the other
three city teams included Rawalpindi, Sargodha and Layyah.
Despite the scorching summer heat, the trials of the first four city teams witnessed participation of
numerous enthusiastic players who came in numbers; 15,000 players participated from Mirpur, 19,000
from Muzaffarabad, 23,500 from Rawalpindi. 13,500 from Sargodha and 7,500 from Layyah.
This initiative by Jazz is in line with the brand’s commitment to promote sports as an integral part of
Pakistan’s culture and lifestyle. Moreover, for the first time in Pakistan Jazz Rising Stars will not only
scout top talent from the streets of Punjab, but also from Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and carry their
unbridled passion for cricket to newer heights by setting up training and development programs.
Speaking about this initiative for the youth, Shahbaz Maqsood Khan Director Marketing, Jazz said:
“Pakistan is a cricket-loving country, and possesses rich talent but lacks the infrastructure to scout
emerging cricketers coming from smaller cities and towns. Jazz Rising Stars is determined to showcase
this raw talent by grooming and training these players on international standards.”
“With the formation of the first four teams of the second season, not only have we found extremely
talented cricketers,” he concluded.
The best tournament players will represent Lahore Qalandars, to have a taste of the third edition of
Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018. Selected players will also be sent to Australia to train with Sydney
Thunders in the Sydney Triangular Series followed by the Emirates Cup in Dubai.
Trials will now be conducted in the remaining four other cities – Bahawalpur, Lahore Gujranwala and
Faisalabad with the Jazz Rising Stars T-20 Tournament set to begin on 27 September, 2017.
