    Kiran More is quite a good wicket-keeper that represented India, both in tests and one-dayers. Further, he was a good lower order batsman, who scored seven half centuries in tests. I wish to commend the present Indian School Committee for inviting Kiran More to preside over the Kiran More''s Clinic from 27th June to 14th July 2009.

    They have done a very commendable job and my hats off to them. I would also like to congratulate and commend my friend of many years, Mr. Chandrakant Shetty, for his enthusiasm and effervesence in volunteering and extending his cooperation in many good and noble causes. Mr. Shetty is a very selfless person and I am sure he is involving himself in various causes for the sake of doing social work and earning a good name.

    However, I personally feel that Mr. Shetty''s eagerness should not be just limited to cricket, but other sporting activities and worthy causes. Jai Hind.

    India is a cricket crazy country. Even though we are away from our country we are still mad about cricket. This shows by bringing Kiran More here to give tips to Indian children’s living in Bahrain. Congrats!! to the Indian School committee. We wish you may arrange many more of these kind programs where the Indian community living in Bahrain may benefit.
