Indian engineering major Shapoorji Pallonji has pledged $2,631 to promote cricket in Ghana and help it prepare for an international tournament in Western Samoa

“We appreciate the assistance because it will help us promote a game that has not been popular in the country over a long period,” Ghana Cricket Association (GCA) executive member Francis Asare told IANS.

“The assistance would greatly help us in our preparation for the upcoming tournament,” Asare added. The reference was to the International Cricket Council’s A division tournament in Western Samoa later this year.

Shapoorji Pallonji pledged the 5,000 Cedis ($2,631) through Indian High Commissioner in Ghana Rajinder Bhagat, who said this had helped the GCA organise a meet to prepare for the international assignment. The tournament held in Accra on Aug 19-Sep 9.
