After a dismal performance in the 4th edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL), Multan Sultans is back at developing local cricketers in South Punjab for the uplift of the game.
The franchise was bought by Ali Tareen-led consortium ahead of the PSL 2019, however, the team was unable to perform as expected.
Always excited about developing the country’s youth, Ali Tareen has invited top-class international coaches and former players to South Punjab to train emerging cricketers in the country.

Lance Klusener, the 1999 World Cup hero for South Africa has been coaching Dolphins in South Africa’s domestic cricket from 2012-16. He has also worked as a batting coach with Zimbabwean national team.
The development program is open for all the emerging cricketers of PSL and it bodes well not just for South Punjab and Multan Sultans, but for Pakistan cricket as well.
