Gilgit-Baltistan has been neglected at all levels when it comes to sports and talent exploration. There is no franchise named after Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan Super League (PSL T20).

This program will fill the missing gap and smoothen the way for potential cricketers from Gilgit-Baltistan to showcase their talent.

The Rising Star Players Development Program will be held in seven cities of Pakistan from 24th July till 14th August 2018.
