Chairman of Cricket Council USA (CCUSA) Mahammad Qureshi has received praises from players and officials around the world for his efforts at developing cricket in the United States.
CCUSA recently celebrated their 20th anniversary at a glitzy banquet at the Hilton Double Tree in Fort Lauderdale. Leading the chorus of praises for Qureshi was president of Cricket West Indies CWI Ricky Skerrit.
According to Skerrit ;”It is clear that Maq has done a lot for cricket in these parts and we praise him for his efforts. For a man to be going strong after 20 years is testament to his love for his game and his love for people. We salute Maq and we will like him to know that Cricket West Indies will support his efforts.”
A number of other speakers on the night heaped praises on the man who has spent over $25M on cricket development in the US.
Former international cricketer Faisal Iqbal said he has never come across any cricket official like Qureshi. “Maq is an amazing human being as he is one leader that is selfless. Year after year he puts out his money to provide a platform for other players to showcase their talent and there are a number of them who have gone on to greatness.
” Speaking from a Pakistan angle he has assisted many of our players in getting a feel of foreign conditions and competitions and this has assisted us tremendously.”
International journalist Vinode Mamchan was also impressed with Maq. “What a human being. He loves life and he loves people. He has helped so many players from around the world it is amazing. Cricket owes this man a great debt of gratitude. A man with a vision and US cricket is stronger for the presence.”
