After the article on Tunku Imran, i received a mail referring me also to Asian Cricket Council (ACC) website: http://www.asiancricket.org/, on an award being given to Federal Territory Cricket Association with regards to Junior Development. Obviously the message did not give me anything else and I had to slog a bit when I surfed ACC's website. The other thing being the message is of a non-reply category, it was impossible to revert to the original source for clarification.
The ACC website covers a number of areas on Development and the aspect of the award for FTCA comes under the heading of "Development News". Under the sub-heading of "Asia's Development Winners", the various categories of winners for the Asian region were announced. FTCA was named as winner under the "Best Junior Cricket Initiative". Sadly, ACC had not provided a synopsis of FTCA's achievements to be winner under this category.
However the ACC Development Manager, Bandula Wamapura had this to state: "These awards are important as they recognise and appreciate the hard work and development". With this FTCA's name had been submitted to an International Cricket Council (ICC) panel to be considered on a worldwide basis. I believe FTCA had missed out on winning that award.
Still FTCA and its Committee must be congratulated for getting the award as Asia's best in Junior cricket initiative. Well done! I hope that FTCA would publicise their award and the details of their junior programme. Unfortunately, i have no access to such information to exactly understand the greatness of FTCA's programme.
