Former Pakistan International cricket star Saqlain Mushtaq visited Dhahran on Jan. 24-28, delivering a coaching clinic hosted by the Dhahran Cricket Association and supported by Dhahran Recreation. Mushtaq, who played for Pakistan for nearly a decade and more recently with national teams in England and New Zealand, was pleasantly surprised by the cricket facilities at Saudi Aramco.
"Looking at the excellent infrastructure and cricket facilities at DCA, it is obvious to me how much Saudi Aramco cares about its employees and their dependents. Not many employers go to the extent that Saudi Aramco has to provide such excellent sporting facilities," Mushtaq said.
Participants called the clinic "a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" to learn from a modern day great. Another participant said he learned more in three days than in the previous three years.
