Match mascot Tayyab

Greenmount Primary School pupil M. Tayyab Nazir was chosen to be the Chance to Shine mascot for the England Team at the England v Pakistan cricket match on Sunday 19 May at Headingley Stadium.

Having watched both England and Pakistan players training and warming up before the game, the players personally met with Tayyab to greet him, sign his bat and have their pictures taken.

Tayyab enjoyed the day very much and is grateful for being given this unique opportunity.

Tayyab plays cricket every Sunday for the Urban Cricket with his coach Sohail Raz, who is also the Community Development Officer (Leeds Division) for Yorkshire Cricket Foundation.
