“We have new moments for the cricketers of Saudi Arabia. Celebrating 10th anniversary of Saudi Cricket, we have initiated an OPEN TALENT HUNT PROGRAM to find out gifted and skilled players in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. And it is my pleasure to announce that Shahid Afridi, the famous all-rounder of Pakistan and Iqbal Sikandar, the development officer of Asian Cricket Council will be here in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for this very special purpose.” said Ahmed Nadeem Nadwi, CEO SCC, preserving a semblance of dignity.

“The best cricketer in domestic cricket had dreamt of competing for the national squads of Saudi Arabia and now their dreams are coming closer and I hope that they will chase their own dreams.” His message was simple but no less resonant.

Inspiring Youth

“I can feel the spirit from now on. I can visualize the predictable mix of Cricket die-hards who will gather around at the event venues from early afternoons. It’s all about the great sport of Cricket and I sense a realistic hope of positive accomplishments. It will be a great event for Saudi Arabian Cricket and I am excited to join the mood of the moment.” said Iqbal Sikandar, the Development Officer of Asian Cricket Council.

“Unveiling the talent in 5 feverish days while celebrating 10th anniversary of Saudi Cricket is itself a recreation. It is about aspiring yourself to stir your soul with some magical moments of Cricket. Competing in honor and glory of sport will be an ultimate experience for the domestic players. ACC U19 Elite Cup Malaysia is scheduled from May 1, 2013 where Saudi Arabia will compete with conviction and pride and certainly the unique magic will be released upon young talented players.  I announce a wild applause for Saudi Cricket as they have taken a right step at right time.”
