Following is the standard procedure we follow for PDP

Players Development Program (PDP)

Players Development Program (PDP) was invented to engage the youth of Pakistan and give a platform to youngsters who weren’t given a chance in the domestic circuit so they could showcase their talent through this platform.


To find undiscovered talent wherever it is possible to reach them and provide them a chance to exhibit and if found worthy, develop and showcase it on a global scale.


Creating hope for talented individuals who do not have resources to nurture their talent and ability to drive a career through cricket.
