At the beginning of the player draft, which is taking place in Lahore, a unique identity was granted to each of the six teams that will be competing in the Pakistan Junior League 2022.
The titles were awarded in accordance with the geography, culture, and history of the six teams that represent the six different cricket associations in the world.
Bahawalpur Royals: Bahawalpur is known for its long history of princely rule, and it is sometimes referred to as the “royal jewel” of Southern Punjab. The Royals will compete in the Pakistan Junior League with the intention of leaving an enduring legacy for the city via their motivational play on the field.
Gujranwala Giants: Gujranwala has a strong athletic legacy, which the Giants will exemplify throughout the Pakistan Junior League. Gujranwala is home to the legendary wrestler Gama Pehlwan, also known as Rustam-e-Zaman, and the city is also home to the Gujranwala Giants. Wrestling is a sport that continues to be popular even in modern times, with younger generations continuing the legacy of previous generations by competing in international competitions and bringing home trophies for their country.
Gwadar Sharks: The stunning Gwadar beach is regarded as Pakistan’s entry point to the rest of the globe via the Arabian Sea. When the 19-match tournament gets underway at the Gaddafi Stadium on October 6, the Gwadar Sharks will be waiting in the shadows for their opportunity to take down their competition.
Hyderabad Hunters: The city that is famous for its gastronomic delicacies will be up for the challenge of sampling all of the different flavors that cricket has to offer. The Hunters will try their best to keep their chances alive of winning the prestigious title of first-ever champions of the Pakistan Junior League.
Mardan Warriors: The Warriors will strive to carry on the proud history of the warriors of the region, who were known for their never-say-die mentality and killer instincts. These are two qualities that are present in all sporting winners.
Rawalpindi Raiders: The districts of Rawalpindi and Potohar are well-known for their difficult terrain and tenacious characteristics. In the Pakistan Junior League 2022, the Raiders would be well prepared to go on a glory-seeking rampage.
“We have sought to relate the names of each of the six teams with their respective cities bearing in mind their own individual identity, culture and traditional background, and history,” said the Director of Commercial Operations for the PCB, Usman Waheed. Each of Pakistan’s six Cricket Associations has a team competing in the Pakistan Junior League, and each of those teams brings a distinctive flavor to the competition.
“We have made it our goal to establish the groundwork for six teams that, in due time, will become well-known names and brands, particularly among the kids who play cricket and the fans of the game not only in our nation but all over the world.”
