Qasim Shah Visits Dubai for a 10 Day Cricket Tournament
Qasim attended a 10 day Cricket tournament in Dubai against the ICC Dubai, Pune India and another team from Liverpool ‘The Mersey Spartans’.
It was a truly great experience for him and his team, under a different climate and challenging at the same time against a diverse group of players.
The first match was a triumph for Qasim as he top scored with 30 not out and ultimately after 4 more games his team, The Renegades, qualified for the final. This day was extremely tense and as Qasim finally went in to bat, beginning with a huge 6, the excitement was uncontainable and after that the boundaries added up with Qasim’s team needing 50 off 24 balls!
Unfortunately, it was not meant to be and Qasim finished on 41 not out off 30 balls, still needing 10 runs for victory.
However, to be runners up was a fantastic achievement and we are very proud of Qasim.
In addition to his batting talent, Qasim excelled with his wicket keeping with Lancashire. It was not just about Cricket albeit that was the purpose of the trip, Qasim was lucky to have family out there who gave him a full Dubai tour! Qasim is also looking forward to going to India at the end of the year, which will add to his cricketing experience and instil some much needed varied skills from a very diverse country.
