The following has been received from Nabeel Ahmed:
I will contribute $500 towards your youth school cricket
development program. I personally appreciate the effort you are making
to promote cricket at grassroots level in this country.
I have been reading and following your activities as far as
school cricket is concerned. I think your school cricket program is the
best program of this country. Cricket in school systems is a must and
you are doing a great job to promote it in the school systems.
I have been involved in cricket in this country for thirty years,
first as a player for eighteen years and then as a cricket promotor. My
undivided attention has been with people and organizations such as
yours that promote cricket at the grassroots level at its best.
Keep up the good work and one day in few years, when cricket is
played nationwide in the schools, you can sit on the side and cherish
