Watch: Children in Pishin construct cricket pitch with ‘Eidi collection’
Karachi: Young cricket fanatics in Pishin, city of Baluchistan, contributed Eidi collection worth PKR 15,000 to construct a tennis ball pitch.
A twitter user named Asfandyar Khan posted a video seeking attention of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) towards no cricket facilities in Pishin.
“There are no grounds in Pishin, no pitches too where the young kids can play and polish their skills,” he said in the video. “Here, a tennis ball pitch is in the making which cost PKR 15,000, an amount which was ‘Eidi Collection’ of young kids,” he added.
Children collected 15k of eidi to make pitch yet they're unable to play professional cricket as they'll play soft ball cricket on it .@TheRealPCBMedia should care of pishin kids.@Shoaibkhan2008 @mak_asif @iMehakShahid @Shoaib_Jatt @SaeedCricky @farhanwrites @leokhanasim pic.twitter.com/zyccm6pnLD

Asfandyar urged authorities to look into this matter and provide young talented cricketers in Pishin with the best possible facilities to showcase their talent.
“There is a lot of talent in Pishin but there is no facility available to groom these youngsters. If PCB provides a platform to these youngsters, they can represent Pakistan at a higher level,” he concluded.
