The Talent Hunt is open to anyone from 18 to 30 years old and both male and female cricketers residing in the UAE.

A total of five sessions in the respective emirates will be held under the rule of ECB selectors Mohammed Tauqir and Khurram Khan, as well as UAE Head Coach Aqib Javed.

“We, the Board, are acutely aware that we have an extremely deep player-pool of cricketers who would qualify under the ICC regulations to represent the UAE in junior, women’s and men’s formats, however a large number of these players simply have not had the opportunity to show us their skills for various reasons,” said ECB member and UAE selector Zayed Abbas.

“The Talent Hunt is an open session for cricketers living in the UAE, and in the Emirate where the roadshow sessions will be held, and we strongly encourage interested persons to come along and show us their abilities.”

Commencing on March 26th the first session will be held in Ajman from 6-9pm at the Ajman Oval nets.

A women’s only session will be held at the Sharjah Stadium nets on April 2nd from 7-9pm, while open men’s and women’s sessions will then follow on April 9th at Abu Dhabi’s Zayed Cricket Stadium nets (6-9pm), on April 16th at the ICC Academy nets at the same time in Dubai and on April 23rd at Sharjah Stadium nets (7-10pm).

The Talent Hunt runs concurrently with Emirates Cricket and Al Ain Water’s junior National Cricket Tournament, where U16 and U19 players have already undergone a selection process through their respective cricket council and will compete at the upcoming Inter Emirates National Cricket Tournament.
