With the great success of the Pakistan Shaheens AFL team and the establishment of a Soccer team, Shaheens sporting club and social club will be looking to form a Shaheens Cricket team. Shaheens cricket team will be participating in various cricket carnivals through out the year. Initially the cricket team will start by participating in the 4th summer Infinity tournament and work their way through other seasonal tournament.
The 2014 Infinity T20 Cricket Tournament is the 4th Annual Summer Event in Melbourne and 5th overall Infinity Cricket Event. A total of 21 teams will be participating. Infinity Cricket’s objective for this event is to ensure the best possible experience for all participants, as they continue their goal of ‘Connecting people through Cricket.’
A couple of highlights for this event:-
