    It is very interesting to note that SLC is working hard to improve the game at the grass root level up North. I’m of the view that very soon we will produce strong fast bowlers from up North. The unification of cricket, North and East with the rest of the country will produce results in the few years to come.

    Good work President, SLC keep it up.
