Esteemed sports figures here on Wednesday said that politicians had displayed minimal concern for fostering the growth of the younger generation. As a result, they lamented that the promotion of beneficial endeavors, such as sports among the youth of Swat, had been largely overlooked. They were speaking in an inauguration ceremony of the much-awaited Swat Cricket League, aiming to showcase the finest cricket talent in the district. The event was organized by Classic Cricket Academy. PCB Swat representative Hussain Ali, coach Fazal Wahab, senior cricketers Rahmat Ali, Shaukat Ali, Liaqat Ali and other national and domestic cricket players participated in the event.

Highlighting the remarkable achievements of the valley’s cricketing youth he revealed that around ten young cricket players hailing from Swat participated in prestigious leagues and championships on both national and international platforms, contributing significantly to the country’s cricketing prowess. The high point of Hussain Ali’s speech was the announcement that district Swat, against all odds and with limited resources, had achieved a monumental feat by becoming the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa champion for the first time in history. “Despite the absence of proper cricket grounds and facilities, the district Swat team emerged victorious in the provincial championship, marking a moment of immense pride for the entire community.He praised the dedication and hard work that went into achieving this remarkable victory, underscoring the importance of perseverance and commitment in the face of challenges.
