Some very depressing footage emerged from Zaman Khan town. It reflects a meagre living state with no solid roof. But at the same time heartening to see with the JAZBA for cricket he came a long way. @iShaheenAfridi & @lahoreqalandars helping him to build a solid house for living pic.twitter.com/cgiDLfF9Mu— Umar Farooq Kalson (@kalson) March 13, 2022
