CAB to organise U25 Emerging Players League
1st October 2021
CAB is all set to organise the U-25 Emerging Players' League from Oct 5, with a pink team being featured by the association to bring awareness about breast cancer.
It will be a 50 over match tournament played on a league basis with the top two teams playing the finals. All four teams will be CAB teams. October being the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, CAB will field a pink team for the meet. The meet will have flexi schedules to accommodate the matches.
"The sole objective of this tournament is to provide opportunity to the U25 players before the selection of the Bengal U25 team ahead of the commencement of the BCCI U25 tournaments. We are determined to provide adequate match practice to the best boys from Bengal and this tournament is a step in this direction. CAB has always stood for noble causes and hence this meet will make endeavours to create awareness against Breast Cancer," said CAB President Avishek Dalmiya.
"The tournament will only feature U25 boys who are sons of the soil either from the probables list of the U25 team or from the players who have done well in the local tournaments. This will help promote and harness homegrown talents and create a bigger pool of players. There will be reserve days for all matches so that there are no abandoned matches because of the climate," said CAB Secretary Snehashis Ganguly.
Keeping an eye on the weather the association has decided that the date of the final will be announced on completion of all the matches so that no player is deprived from showcasing his talent.
