Pakistan lately made the announcement of the Pakistan Junior League, a new league that would only feature junior players.
Imran Tahir of South Africa and Colin Munro of New Zealand had announced that they would serve as mentors for this league. For the same position, Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik have also been hired. Darren Sammy will take on a mentorship role as well.
Imran Tahir expressed his happiness at being chosen to serve as a mentor for the PJL. Although the spinner was born in Pakistan, he competed for South Africa internationally.
“Returning to Lahore for the Pakistan Junior League in a team mentor’s role is one of my most satisfying achievements as I still owe a lot to my country of birth. This is an exciting opportunity to work with emerging slow bowlers and help them develop and flourish so that they have a chance to emulate the great spinners this country has produced,” Tahir had said.
“I am fully behind the philosophy of Pakistan Junior League as this creates a tough and challenging environment for the players with high expectations, and only those who will clear this scale will go leaps and bounds in their careers. With the amount of international cricket being played, this event will help Pakistan to amplify their pool of players, which, in turn, will increase playing opportunities and earn the prized national cap,” he further added
