Mubashshir Usmani, Emirates Cricket Board General Secretary, said, “We are extremely pleased with the support and commitment shown by Sky247.net and Sat Sports News in associating themselves with highlighting Associate Cricket, who are undoubtedly proving to be the most entertaining and fast-moving nations and teams across the cricketing world. We look forward to welcoming all teams participating in the ‘Sky247.net Tri-Series March 2022’ supported by Sat Sports News to our grounds (across the UAE) and to 2-weeks of competitive cricket. Our special thanks and appreciation to Pacific Ventures who continues to be a valuable and integral partner and sponsor (of Emirates Cricket), who greatly assist in bringing these associations and tournaments to fruition.”
