LAHORE - The joint presidential candidate of Lahore City Cricket Association (LCCA) from West and North Zones Khawaja Nadeem Ahmad Saturday said that if elected he would continue his reforms for the overall development of the game at grassroots level.
"We will resume our efforts from where we left, and our aim is to re-establish the LCCA status as one of the role model regional cricket association of the country,” he said here after a reception which was hosted in his honour after victory of his group in the West and North Zone elections of the LCCA.
Nadeem said the victory of his group in two zones, out of three, proved that the cricket loving people had elected right people for the right job in the zonal elections. "With my re-election as LCCA president I will take all the stake holders in confidence for the betterment of the game and my doors are open to everyone for the cause of cricket,” he added.
To a query, he said that he would welcome positive suggestions and opinion from East Zone from where his group lost the election, in the larger interest of the game to launch collective efforts for achieving the specific goal of development of cricket at early level. "I am thankful to all my friends from all the zones for extending support to my group in the zonal elections and now the stage has come to join hands for the continuation of reforms in LCCA,” he asserted.
Nadeem said he would continue his endeavour to get the support of the Punjab government for the promotion of club cricket besides converting the existing LCCA ground into a modern cricket arena equipped with lights to organise night cricket.
"The LCCA will lend support to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to help implement the PCB’s polices for the revival of the game at grassroots level besides seeking sponsorship from private business houses to re-organise its cricket leagues,” he claimed.
