"How to play Cricket" lessons by MAQ for the North Broward prepatory School.
MAQ is already a Phd and this time he went to Private School North Broward Prepatory School to demonstrate and teach the 6&7 graders about Cricket as Schools in USA did not recognize the game of Cricket and School Boards have not included it in schools sports Curricullum,infact the Sports Coaches have hardly any knowledge about Cricket--and the irony of the fact is it has existed on US territories
for more than 200 years and is a popular game played all over USA.Mr.Qureshi is planning to go to grass root level so that Cricket gets it due share and status in US Sports Arena..
The arrangement for the demostration of Cricket was made possible by the youngest Captian of US ALL STAR Cricket team Zishawn Qureshi and also student in NB( North Broward Prepatory School) who took permission from the School Authorities and selected his Dad(MAQ) knowing it well ,no body is better than him to talk and teach about Cricket.I had the oppurtunity to witness the entire 45 minutes episode,how Mr.Qureshi really mesmerized the children with his way of explaining how Cricket is played. In a beautiful track and Football ground,Children were ushered in by School Coach Mr.Cardona. In the practical part,team captains were choosen and two teams were formed and MAQ showed each step to the children how to bowl,bat and field,what are the fielders position.
In short while he had accomplished much more than many thingsand each student was eager to partcipate and were happy to learn that we from the Cricket Council USA will return next week to further explain and teach Cricket.Mr.Qureshi(MAQ) gave the Coach Mr.Cardona the responsibily of distributing the Cricket Bats and uniforms for the students.
