The Pakistan Junior League (PJL), Ramiz Raja’s dream tournament, is scheduled to start on October 1. The junior cricketers’ franchise-based league will last for two weeks. There will be one mentor for each team. Most of the mentors are former cricketers from Pakistan and outside Pakistan. A source in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said legendary cricketer Javed Miandad has been named as the mentor for the tournament.
One mentor will be awarded ৫০ 50,000 for the two-week tournament. In Pakistani currency which is one crore rupees. And in Bangladeshi rupees it is about 45 lakhs. Apart from tournament mentor Javed Miandad, the PCB has so far found mentors for three teams. Two of the three are former Pakistan captains Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik. Another is former West Indies captain Darren Sammy.
When PCB chairman Ramiz first planned the tournament, he said one legendary cricketer would be mentored for each team. He added as a footnote that each mentor would be a legendary cricketer from Pakistan and outside Pakistan.
However, the PCB is not able to find the meaning of foreign mention in the T20 World Cup. In addition to being a mentor, Miandad, Afridi, Malik and Samira will also serve as goodwill ambassadors for the tournament. In addition, they will help young cricketers in various ways throughout the tournament.
