“Red bull had chosen a very good and secure place. We should appreciate Red Bull for the way they have organized this tournament for boys. I think this activity should be continued because it’s a very healthy activity in Ramadan. Night cricket in Karachi has always been a trend whether its tape ball or tennis ball. We must appreciate this initiative and I am delighted to see such an amazing crowd here! I am also here because even my cricket initially started with tape ball and tennis ball. Today, the way they have organized this event is really commendable and I hope Red Bull will continue arranging such events because it is a very healthy activity for boys who stay up till Suhoor. Well done Red Bull!” – Moin Khan, Former Pakistan Cricket Team Captain.

Street cricket being such a prevalent sport, the tournament arranged by Red Bull got massive response from both media and Karachi Street’s denizens.
