LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced City Cricket Associations trials in Punjab from May 29 till June 10.
According to the PCB, trials for U19 and seniors teams will be held in Central Punjab, Southern Punjab and those areas of Northern Cricket Association that fall in Punjab province.
“Those players who registered between 12-16 March can appear for the trials. To facilitate those willing cricketers who were unable to register themselves, the PCB has allowed on-venue registration. Only those cricketers who are born on or after 1 September 2002 and before 1 September 2006 can register for the U19 trials,” the cricket board said in a statement.
All players are required to bring their original CNICs or B-Forms along with the printed copies of their registration forms. The trials will be conducted from 9am till 6pm. The candidates are required to report at 8pm in white-coloured cricket clothing.
The three Cricket Association coaching staffs – First XI, Second XI and U19 – will conduct the trials along with selectors of the national age-group sides and the National High Performance Centre-affiliated coaches.
Remember, trails in Balochistan and Sindh were conducted earlier in April and March. Trials in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Azad Jammu and Kashmir will take place once the local authorities relax the Covid-19-enforced restrictions.
