The first-of-its-kind junior franchise T20 tournament is scheduled to be played between 1-15 October at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. The tournament will feature some of the most exciting under-19 stars from across Pakistan alongside talented youngsters from across the world.

T20 superstars such as Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik, Daren Sammy Imran Tahir, and Colin Munro have already been appointed as mentors of the various franchises as the PCB looks to use their expertise in honing the skills of the future stars while legendary Pakistani cricketer, Javed Miandad, has also been roped in to supervise the whole league.


Which cities would you like to see in the PJL? Share your thoughts in the comments below!


  • For God sake avoid rawalpindi because rawalpindi administration have no ability to handle su h events instead they creat troubles for local residents, students, daily wagers etc etc

  • Gujranwala should be there. It’s 5th largest (Now actually 4th) city of Pakistan population wise. Sialkot most of times is there in such representations due to political influences & big export industry. But actually Gujranwala is the 3rd bigger hub of industry in Pakistan and it gives 5-6% of total GDP of Pak economy.
    Now this city should be promoted as per its right. It’s has JINNAH CRICKET STADIUM EQUIPPED WITH NIGHT LIGHTS AND BIG CRICKET SUPPORTING CROWD. NOW IT ALSO HAS EXCELLENT STANDARDS HOTELS/ RESTAURANTS FOR PLAYER’S STAY. GUJRANWALA’S FOOD NEED TO BE PROMOTED AROUND THE WORLD TO GET TOURIST’S ATTRACTION. GUJRANWALA HAS MANY HISTORICAL PLACES AS WELL.
    GUJRANWALA NAME AS BRAND SHOULD BE IN THIS LEAGUE
