Four promising Jammu and Kashmir U-19 players were on Saturday called up to attend the National Cricket Academy camp at Bengaluru.

The youngsters include, Qamran Iqbal, Mujtaba Yousuf, Kanhaiya Wadhwan and Indian Premier League recruit, Rasikh Salam. All of them produced exceedingly well performances in both Cooch Behar and Vinoo Makand Trophy, hence earning a place in his special BCCI-organised camp.

Qamran, having appeared for India U-19 side for a couple of assignments, was an automatic choice while Mujtaba and Kanhaiya also had attended the same camp last year as well.

Pertinently, Rasikh Salam, who is presently playing for Mumbai Indians in IPL has also found a place in the camp where top U-19 cricketers across India will be trained.

This has come as a major boost for J&K cricket as it is for the first time that more than two J&K cricketers made it to the NCA camp at a time.
