LAHORE: Most-followed franchise of Pakistan Super League (PSL) Lahore Qalandars have on Friday announced its rising star squad for the tri-series with Big Bash teams in Australia nest month.
Qalandars have signed a contract with Sydney Thunders and Sydney Sixers for a tr-series between emerging players from these sides before the start of Australia’s premier league.
Lahore Qalandars and Jazz wish to transform the local cricketing landscape in the coming months through this development program.

Tabriaz, Saadullah, Rafeh, Ameer, Najid, Sikandar, Saif, Ghulaam, Usman, Yasir, Ehtisham, Ahmed, M. Irfan, M. Umar, and Mudassar.
“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. After 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.
