MMZ Cricket Club receives gear from overseas-based Guyanese
Former member of the West Meten-Meer-Zorg Cricket Club, Abdool Shakoor, who now resides in Florida, recently returned to Guyana and made a timely donation of cricket gear to his former club.
The donation included two bats, two helmets, two pairs of batting pads, two pairs of batting glove, 18 white cricket balls and one gear bag.
Shakoor, now 68, was a left-handed batsman who played for East Bank in the 1979 Sterling tournament, scoring four centuries that season. He also turned out for Gandhi Youth Organisation in the city.
Shakoor is the uncle of former Guyana national youth cricketer Ajaz Asgarally and Azurdeen Mohamed who played in the 2010 ICC Under-19 World Cup for USA.
“Continue the good work and that will bring you success in the future,” was Shakoor’s advice to the youths of the West Meten-Meer-Zorg Cricket Club as he presented them with the gear.
