The boys were magnificent but plenty of credit goes to Sharjeel Siddiqui for his incredible passion, coaching, and commitment in developing these fine young cricketers.
Muhammad Hassan, 8, inspite of his young age, who joined cricket as a beginner picked amazing bowling, fielding, and batting in a short period of time.
The team bringing glory again to the name of Liverpool Catholic Cricket Club (LCCC).
