When it comes to talent, Pakistan is swamping of innumerable examples. Without a doubt, you can find some insanely talented aspiring artists and athletes. With that being said, we have every reason to celebrate these people who have given their very best to our country in their respective disciplines.
Talking about ICC U-19 World Cup, we proudly mention that our homegrown talent is set to play in the coveted tournament in New Zealand. Pepsi, in collaboration with PCB, launched a talent hunt program across 16 regions of Pakistan. Through trials, we uncovered some incredible talent in the name of these players. Plus, the players went to Regional and National Academy Training programs that helped develop key skills in them.
With that being said, Pepsi Pakistan and PCB organized #Future11 – an incredible event to garner support for the U-19 team going to New Zealand tomorrow
Pepsi has always given opportunities to fresh talent and the #Future11 event bears testimony.
Here’s all that happened at the #Future11 that people are talking about…
The afternoon in Lahore was joined up by noteworthy celebrities, Pakistan National Cricket team, and some other people to celebrate an exciting atmosphere. The spirit was alive; we already know how Pepsi has vouched for Cricket in Pakistan all these years and now it took responsibility to groom and polish these players for the ultimate challenge.
Let’s begin with all the people who joined in support of them…
We had Atif Aslam, Meesha Shafi, Mawra Hocane, Imran Abbas, Cybil Choudhry, Shoaib Malik, Junaid Khan, Usman Shinwari the cast of the movie Parchi.

So great to see people in their support!

The key takeaway here is that Pepsi managed to mark a successful closure to this program and once again proved that it’s the primary “flagbearer” of futurist prospect of Cricket in Pakistan
What a send-off, seriously!
Followed by, the event became a talk of the town in no time. Social media went into a meltdown just after people learned of the #Future11 event in Lahore. Tweets after tweets, people absolutely could not get over the major highlights of the afternoon.
Social media stood in support and here are some of the incredible highlights of people spreading the good word! 🙂
Atif Aslam talked of how the boys shouldn’t feel embarrassed talking in Urdu in a foreign country. This is something which is so important to be said out loud. Talking comfortably in their own language with confidence would be super! ??✌?#Future11@pepsipakistan @TheRealPCB pic.twitter.com/CZrLfuRSFY

Pepsi has always engaged efforts for the brightest prospect of Cricket in Pakistan, seriously
The future of our Pakistan Cricket Team is secure. I mean the talent found by Pepsi and PCB is amazing and inspiring because they're not one of those rich boys getting into teams these are players based on real talent and some of them were picked off on the street#Future11
