Hayat Khan played cricket fro Midwood High in the PSAL, New York City’s Public High schools cricket league, and the NYPD United Cricket League. Now a College Freshman its no accident Hayat chose Boston University, which is one of the 5 pioneering Colleges of American College Cricket, beginning in March 2009 – his Advisor suggested, because of his love of playing cricket, he should look at Universities which would fulfill his academic needs, as well as having a cricket team.
Azrab Cheema is a tall College Freshman at NYU-Polytechnic but he is only 16 years old !
Also remarkable about Azrab is the fact that he played in the NYC High School (PSAL) Cricket league for William Grady High School and the NYPD Cricket league (for young men ages 15 to 19). When selecting Universities one of the reasons Cheema chose NYU-Poly was because of its cricket team, which particpated in last March’s American College Cricket Spring Break Championship.
NYC PSAL Cricket Bassett Thompson and NYPD Cricket’s Jeff Thompson (no relation) as well as Poilice Commssioner Ray Kelly can all feel proud.
