The Pakistan Cricket Board has begun an ambitious bid to launch a franchise-based T20 League for junior cricketers.
The inaugural edition is slated to be held in October, with all the existing six PSL franchise being given the rights to acquire a franchise.
In a statement, PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja said PCB aims to pick players from the 15-19 age-group through a draft process.
He said this will be a city-based league with players to be selected through a draft system involving international age-group cricketers. The PCB will create an environment of brilliance with legends and icons of the game sitting in player dug-outs in the roles of mentors and coaches, and broadcast coverage from the top draw.”
