I wish our boys the best of luck. USA cricket is on the threshold
of turning a new era. With the help we are now getting from New
Zealand, and the hard work of Don Lockerbie. All we need to do now
is to work towards the goal of uplifting the standard of cricket
in this country. let us put aside our selfishness and needs to hold
on to power. The game is greater than any one of us.
