Sawhney: "I am the father of Iran's cricket"

TEHRAN, Oct. 21 (Mehr News Agency) -- Chief of Iran's Cricket Council (ICC) Juggoo Sawhney said on Wednesday that he is the number one man in the sport in Iran and he is nicknamed the "Father of Iran's Cricket."

"Iran has many talented players but they remain unknown. ICC is always looking for opportunities to bring cricket to new territories," said Sawhney.

"Iranian cricket teams train at the number four ground of Azadi Stadium. Meanwhile, the Takhti Stadium is being prepared as well. Iran's national cricket team will likely take part in the 2010 Asian Games which will be held in Guangzhou, China. But first we have to establish a league in the country," the 63-year-old Indian expatriate added.

Hossein Sadeq Abedin President of Iran's Cricket Federation presented a plaque of honor and appreciation to Sawheny in recognition of his services to the sport.
