They played a ‘limited overs’ game against the Centre side where the leading lights of Mumbai movie and television industry entertained the rest of the school, parents and teachers in a festive atmosphere.

The beautifully set up pitch in the middle of the mini tartan track saw the students display a lot of skill and aggression under the guidance of their coach, backed up by loud cheering throughout.

Sohail Khan and Adil Jagmagia, Mumbai Indians franchise owners; skipper Suniel Shetty and vice captain Aftab Shivdasani; and a host of other members of the Mumbai Heroes contingent were present for the fun and play session at the Centre.

“We are so happy to be doing this small bit before our match tomorrow night (Saturday) and it’s great to be back at our home venue of Dubai again,” said Sohail and Adil.

Stefan Martyres, one of the livewires who manages and coordinates event matters at the Mumbai Heroes’ HQ in Versova said: “The full team will be in by the time we go for the net session tonight. The stopover is hectic as most of the players have a tight acting schedule back home and abroad, yet their interest levels for CCL and social causes are so high.”

The event at the Centre was held in coordination with Pacific Ventures PR and Media for whom Al Noor is their Corporate Social Responsbility Project for 2013.
