The most consistent team for AK CLUB year in and year out Is the Agakhan Sports Club Cricket team and yet the most forgotten team in our community.
The AK cricket team has been performing superbly for a very long time under the captainship of Mr. Ayzaaz Jassani and his young guns as well as some experienced players. This is the time to recognize and give respect to this team.
Mr. Ayzaaz Jassani’s commitment, time and passion for this club has taken us to new heights and currently we have 4 young ismaili players playing for the senior Tanzania cricket national team namely ; Arshaan Jassani, Aaryan Premji, Arsalaan Premji and Khalil Zulfikar. This is an excellent achievement for our jamat and hats off to our players.
Currently we are having two teams in two different divisions, AK Club A is in division A and AK Club B is in Division B. AK CLUB A consists of 7 ismaili players and 6 non ismaili players, whilst AK CLUB B consists of 9 ismaili players and 5 non ismaili players. We also have one team full of ismaili players which participates in the annual inter community team and are the current defending champions of this trophy which they successfully defended this year.
Below are the trophies we have won this year:
PRO 10, SUPER SIXES, DRCT20, DRCC A DIVISION 50 OVERS – AK CLUB A, DRCC B DIVISION 30 OVERS – AK CLUB B AND THE INTECOMMUNITY SHIELD.
We are also currently playing in the Caravan T20 ad have won all our group matches and through to the knock out stages and if all goes well, we shall end this year as the Caravans T20 winners as well. We urge the jamat to please come, watch and cheer our young and experienced players as we try to end this year on a higher side.
Come one, Come All and let us recognize and appreciate our cricket team, as it has been the most consistent team in the AK CLUB sports history!!!
