Trials will be held in Jeddah (Jan. 16-17), Yanbu (Jan. 18), Dammam (Jan. 19), and Riyadh (Jan. 20-21).

To formally identify new talent and select a pool of 50 promising cricket players across Saudi Arabia, Saudi Cricket Center (SCC) has officially invited the world-renowned Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi to conduct a transparent exercise of new talent selection with formal support from ACC’s cricket development executive Iqbal Sikander.

According to the press release of SCC these cricket selection trials under Shahid Afridi’s lead will be in Jeddah (Jan. 16-17), Yanbu (Jan. 18), Dammam (Jan. 19), and Riyadh (Jan. 20-21). The SCC had planned a trial in Madinah, but that has been scratched from the schedule. All cricket players (residents of Saudi Arabia), regardless of age or nationality, from all cricket clubs and leagues (whether affiliated with SCC or not) are equally entitled to participate and compete for the selection

In this regard, a special purpose website www.cricpro.org has been established and duly propagated in local media and press. All existing and prospective players are required to register their names at the website in order to be considered for the above talent selection program.

The Cricket Talent Selection Event is coinciding with SCC’s tenth anniversary and is considered a good business promotion opportunity (Jeddah, Yanbu, Medinah, Riyadh, Dammam) for interested corporate sponsors.
