The award was given on best per­for­mance by a young player who has played less than 25 matches in each play­ing for­mat. The win­ners of the awards were de­cided by a jury com­pris­ing the match com­men­ta­tors.

For the last seven years, we have been sup­port­ing new tal­ent in polo and plan to do the same for cricket in years to come. I con­grat­u­late Rizwan and An­war, this year's win­ners of Bank Al­falah's Ris­ing Tal­ent Award in Cricket. In­tro­duced last year, our Ris­ing Tal­ent Pro­gramme inspires and recog­nises young, up­com­ing tal­ent in the coun­try and pro­vides them with mean­ing­ful op­por­tu­ni­ties."

The Ris­ing Tal­ent Award has been es­tab­lished by Bank Al­falah to foster emerg­ing tal­ent and show­case new sto­ries of suc­cess.

The Bank in­tends to con­tinue look- ing for such young tal­ented in­di­vid­u­als and help trans­form am­bi­tions into re­al­ity.
