Jazz
Rising
Stars

the award winning movement that changed the lives of MANY and showcased our grass-root cricketing talent to the world, is back!

What started off as a dream when Jazz was relaunched last year with a promise to give opportunities and resources to our talented youth for them to achieve success, grew to become the largest cricket talent hunt of the world. It discovered unique talent like the world's only ambidextrous fast bowler Yasir Jan, launched the careers of aspiring cricketers, Usman Qadir, Saif Badar, Mohammad Irfan and Ghulam Mudassar, won prestigious awards and brought international acclaim to Pakistan.

This year our ambitions and aspirations are bigger than before. Adhering to the framework of scouting and grooming talent, trials will be held in 9 districts by cricketing legend Aqib Javed. The best players from each district will form their district team and battle each other for supremacy in a grand tournament. The top 16 players will be taken to Australia and the UAE to play in the Sydney Triangular Series and Dubai Emirates Cup respectively; and most of all, the best players will realize their dream of joining the Lahore Qalandars Squad for PSL 2018.

Jazz has always been a proponent of positive change in the lives of Pakistanis and this year again, we intend to empower each and every citizen of Pakistan to live their dreams. Join us in our mission.
