PESHAWAR:


The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday announced it will launch the ‘Imran Khan Talent Hunt Programme’ in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) from the end of next month.


Talking to journalists at the Peshawar Press Club, PTI Sports and Culture President Iftikhar Elahi said promising cricketers will be selected at the provincial level and Imran Khan will come to Peshawar to train the players himself.

“PTI Chairman Imran Khan wants to bring the cricket team of K-P at par with the national team,” said Elahi, adding the area has “great talent” but requires training opportunities.

“We will also introduce indoor games after cricket selection,” he added. K-P General Secretary Asif Orakzai said they will select an under-19 team from Peshawar Sports Complex and train the players for three weeks. The chosen team will compete against four other teams, one from each province and Gilgit-Baltistan. The winner would be sent to Tajikistan for further training on the special directives of the party chairman.
