Our aim at Lahore Qalandars was to select the finest 15 from our Player Development Program and take them to Australia for a trip of a lifetime. A platform where these emerging Qalandars would be able to hone their skills at a young age playing against cricketers from one of the finest, if not the finest, cricketing cultures in the world.
The final 15 below are in Australia under the guidance of our Director of Cricket; Aaqib Javed with Ijaz Ahmed Junior as the coach of the side.
Sydney Thunder collaborated with the Qalandars to make this dream a reality and it is through this partnership for the promotion and welfare of cricket that this tour was made possible. The Qalandars have three warm-up matches before they play against the Sydney Thunders and the Sydney Sixers in what would be a memorable and historic encounter.
Qalandars start their tour against Randwick Petersham, a club that is renowned for producing immaculate talent, the likes of which include Usman Khwaja and David Warner.
