This is an excerpt taken from: Cricket in Kashmir is not cricket, say ace
The youngster, Haziq Bhat, who is presently in Delhi just to play the longer-version and quality turf-cricket termed the leagues in Kashmir, the waste of time and money:
“It is a waste of time and money. Matting cricket in Kashmir is ruining the young cricketers and if we want to play at a higher level we need to focus on quality cricket, not quantity which we will get from turf wickets and other basic facilities.”
“In Kashmir, we lack all the basic facilities. So it’s a request to JKCA to produce quality cricket not quantity.” He said.
