PCB and Bank Alfalah partner to revive school cricket in Pakistan

The Pakistan Cricket Board and Bank Alfalah have partnered for four years to bring back school cricket in the entire country.

On Monday, the signing ceremony between the two sides took place at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

A school competition will be organized annually by the PCB and Bank Alfalah, with 120 schools (to be selected by the PCB) taking part, in accordance with the collaboration agreement.

The PCB and Bank Alfalah will organize statewide school drives to recruit and develop young people who have a strong love for cricket through program-based interventions.

In these four years, school cricket competitions will be held on 105 PCB-authorized and approved grounds.

PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja said, “We have entered another exciting partnership for the development of cricket. School cricket was one of our strengths in the years gone by but unfortunately, we were not able to sustain organized and effective school cricket systems in recent years.”

President and CEO of Bank Alfalah Atif Bajwa said, “Bank Alfalah is proud of its longstanding connection with PCB and together we’ve continued to promote the shared passion for cricket through all these years working in collaboration.”
