Lahore Qalandar’s in collaboration with Jazz announced the ‘Jazz Rising Stars’ initiative to promote cricket across the Punjab province in a press conference held at the Club. Lahore Qalandars Director Cricket Operations Aqib Javed while speaking at a press conference 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 ever done before. Some will rise and some will fall, but I hope the two that emerge justify our trust in them.” Lahore Qalandars chairman Fawad Rana, Mudassar Nazar, Mobilink CMO Asif Aziz and Director Marketing Shahbaz Maqsood Khan were also present at the occasion.
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,” he added.
The Jazz Rising Stars’ will be commencing from August 26, 2016 with the Jazz Rising Stars Tournament taking place on October 1 after the end of phase one.
