My Dear Cricket Lovers!
over a period of time we felt an immense talent, love and craze for cricket in the high rise mountains, sprawling plans and narrow but scenic valleys of Dir. Unfortunately there was no academy and no opportunity for the players to practice, refine and polish their talent.
The players used to request for admission and literally plead for practice in academies at swat, Peshawar, Lahore, and Karachi. Seldom they were given a chance. On the other hand we saw tournaments being arranged in small grounds at off crop season in cultivated fields, by the river side and in the streets. Local generators and flood lights illuminated the night cricket events in Ramadan.
Having seen all this we felt a need to have our own “ Dir Sports/ Cricket Academy” owned by Dir Cricket lovers, supervised by the undersigned
The aim is to provide a chance to our own talent to practice and polish their skills. coordinate with provincial cricket and PCB to promote our own players.Our mission is to give the talented youth a chance to explore/exploit their skills and represent Dir at national/international level.
Looking forward to an enthusiastic response and successful sessions under expert coaches and national Cricket players....
