Trinidad & Tobago Newsday article.

Port of Spain, Trinidad - A new cricket star seems to be on the rise in the Central area, he is 11- year old Amrit Dass who performed with distinction with the ball during the annual Over-35 versus Under-35 Cricket match at the Edinburgh Recreation Ground last week.

The game which was funded by Fizes Hosein, the president of the International Sports and Cultural Academy (ISACA), allowed supporters to witness the bowling skills of little Amrid- a student of the Felicity Hindu Primary School, who with his leg-breaks was able to take four wickets in the match and earn the Under-35 victory. 

After the game Hosein presented Amrid with a cash award and promised to help with his overall development. Only yesterday Hosein told Newsday that he has made contact with Ian Ramlal— the Primary School representative on the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB), to ask him to have a close look at the budding cricketer. Hosein, the brainchild of the Dollar Cricket tournaments, has been on a drive to unearth new talent and assist in the development of young individuals through the avenue of sports. 

He told Newsday he feels he has seen a young talent who could progress all the way to the Trinidad and Tobago junior and senior teams, once he gets the proper nurturing. The ISACA boss vowed to monitor his progress saying he will do what is necessary to ensure that Amrid lives up to his true potential. 

At the same time Hosein in an address to the supporters before the game, made a plea for parents to work hard with their young ones. “They are the future of the nation and it is critical for them to be socialised properly so that they can grow up to be well respected individuals” Hosein explain.
