LAHORE: Pakistan Cup is all set to commence in cities of Faisalabad, Islamabad, Lahore and Multan from March 2.

After the HBL PSL 7, Pakistan Cup also provides a great opportunity to young and talented cricketers to showcase their skills to get a chance to represent Pakistan in white-ball series against Australia.

In this context, the PCB has confirmed 16-player squads of six Cricket Associations teams for the Pakistan Cup – the final tournament of the domestic season 2021-22. The squads have been finalised with the idea of providing opportunities to those young players who have given impressive performances in this year’s domestic season which include HBL PSL 7.

The tournament will be held on a double-league basis from 2nd March and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa led by Iftikhar Ahmed will look to defend the title when they take on Raza Ali Dar led Central Punjab at the Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad. Test leg-spinner Yasir Shah will lead Balochistan, while another leg-spinner and all-rounder Shadab Khan will lead Northern. Test fast bowler Mir Hamza will lead Sindh which will meet Salman Ali Agha’s Southern Punjab on the opening day at the Multan Cricket Stadium.

The PCB will live stream group stage matches scheduled at the Multan Cricket Stadium. The decision to broadcast semi-finals and final at the Multan Cricket Stadium will be taken in due course.
