Azurdeen “Andy” Mohammed Signs Equipment Contract

Dec. 15th, 2009
USA Under-19 and New York local boy Azurdeen “Andy” Mohammed signed an equipment deal with Kangroo Cricket. An Indian company, the Kangroo Company (kangroocricket.com) is owned by the Mahajan Brothers - international exporters.

Mohammed is the first USA player to be sponsored by Kangroo cricket. “I am happy that Kangroo gave me the opportunity to use their equipment and I will do my best to make them proud.” He hopes that he can help promote the Kangroo brand of cricket gear in the USA. “Their equipment is by far the best gear I have ever used, and I will definitely recommend Kangroo to any player who is looking to try something new and effective.”

Growing up playing “backyard” cricket, every kid dreams about representing their country. Azurdeen is now going to represent the United States in the ICC 2010 Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand. He recently represented the USA at the ICC Americas Under-19 World Cup qualifiers in Toronto, Canada. His performance highlights thus far, includes an MVP award in a qualifying match against Bermuda, where he made 61 runs and claimed 3 wickets. In addition, he top scored with a brave 90 against Afghanistan. As of now, Azurdeen has the highest individual score among his teammates for the two tours to Canada. Representing his country is a dream come through and having an equipment contract is more than he could have ever imagined.

“I hope I can be more successful at the Under-19 World Cup and bring home the championship to the USA, which will help promote cricket around our nation,” said Azurdeen, during his preparation for the World Cup event next month in New Zealand. The left-hand opening bats man and left arm orthodox bowler has been training three days a week. “I wish I can train more, but it’s a tough thing to do while attending school”.

On Friday, the TCI College of Technology freshman Azurdeen Mohammed leaves for Florida, for the last USA training camp before the team departs for New Zealand, on January 1st. Having cricket as a career is on his agenda and he says that the Under-19 World Cup is the best place to start making that dream career become a reality.
