The academy registrations have been opened for the Dukhan Community already.”

The two teams are lead by two senior stallions players, Romelo Kumarage and Pratham Mittal. Ashan Perera further added to the comments “ We have seen an immense development in junior cricket in Qatar ever since Stallions started operations back in year 2013. This is another great initiative to develop the game among youth. We have done many overseas tours for our players and made them aware of the international standards of the game. The exposure and experiences carried out of a tour is remarkable. The whole concept of this event is to give the best possible opportunities to our youngsters to participate and learn about the game that we all love”
