KESC mars Premiers League fun
There was a time not long ago when almost every street in Karachi was hosting its own game of cricket every evening. Young and old alike, would use rocks as makeshift wickets and would draw a line for the crease. Street cricket had its own set of rules.
But as Pakistan’s cricket team surrounded itself in controversy, the youth of Karachi discovered a new passion. Soccer! The rocks now mark the goal. Football fever has taken Karachi by surprise. What started as a cult like following of European clubs, has now actually pervaded all stratas of society. Universitites may or may not have a cricket team anymore but all universities now have a football team, and regular inter mural competitions continue to keep these teams competitive.
These days, however, footballers and fans alike are all focussing on only one tournament. The Primiership battle that rages on in Europe. Yet the fans’ excitement in the season has been marred by power outages in the most intense moment of the match. Very few lucky people are able to watch the entire match in a go.
KESC has left no stone unturned even in the sports arena.Don’t forget to catch the highlights on youtube the next morning!
