Junior Pitch, an initiative of Sehwag Cricket Academy of Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag, is a weekend cricket league for children below the age of 14 years.
This league was conceptualised in 2013 to give an opportunity to the kids who are passionate about the sport but have not got a chance to showcase their talent.
The league, now in its 4th year, allows children to play friendly matches and develop as team players.
This year, Junior Pitch started on 2nd April 2016 and ends by mid May 2016. The matches are played on each Saturday, Sunday and public holidays. The league’s title sponsor is Uflex and associate sponsor is ONGC.
In total, there are thirty two teams in 5 groups and each team gets to play six matches making it more than 80 matches across 4 venues. Matches are played on grounds in South Delhi, Jammu and Jhajjar.
