BREAKING NEWS - Amreek Singh and Ayoub Ahmadzai selected for Cricket Canada Development Squad

I am very pleased to announce that two of Ottawa's premier cricket talents Ayoub Ahmadzai (Capital United CC) and Amreek Singh (Defence CC) have been selected for the Cricket Canada Development squad that is set to play against Bermuda next week.  This is a truly proud moment for OVCC as these two richly deserving young men will now get a chance to show their talent on a national stage. 

Amreek Singh is a left arm fast bowler who has been a top performer in our league for many years and has been a key factor in his club Defence CC winning several championships in recent years.  Amreek is a very useful middle order batsman who can take the attack to the opposition with his big hitting.  A true matchwinner, it is going to be exciting to see this young man continue to develop his talent.

Ayoub Ahmadzai is a massively talented batsman who has singularly redefined the art of batting.  Many long standing local rcords have fallen at the feet of this young virtuoso.  His colossal aggregate of over 1000 runs in 2016 defies comprehension.  Not since the days of the legendary Dr. A.B. Lang has anyone come even close to posting such scores.  An Afghanistan U-19 player and winner of the Ottawa Sports Award Cricketer of the Year for 2 years running, Ayoub was always destined for greater things.  

We wish both these wonderful young men the very best of luck in the matches against Bermuda next week.  You carry the hopes and dreams of our league with you.  We are all very proud of you.  Best of luck.

Ajit Thomas
President, OVCC
