Following an invitation from the MCC, Qasim Shah recently travelled to Lords, to enjoy an all-expenses paid trip to watch a test match game England v Pakistan.  It was a truly amazing day with the weather being a perfect bonus to experience the atmosphere, on and around the ground.

Qasim was presented with a commemorative plaque in recognition for the 112 he scored when QEGS 1st X1 defeated the MCC in their annual fixture last season.

Qasim’s parents commented, ‘it was a very proud and emotional day, especially when his name was viewed on the Lords Cricket board’.

In addition, Qasim has been selected to play 2 matches in the Lancashire U17’s team against Yorkshire in the coming weeks.  This is a result of how well he has been performing in the 1st Team at Burnley Cricket Club, consistently achieving 2 fifties and securing his place as a number 3 player in a senior side.
