ZAFRULLAH KHAN MALIK MEMORIAL CRICKET TOURNAMENT
PLAYING FOR PEACE SINCE 2012
Named to honor (late) Mrs. Nasra Wazir Ali's brother, (late) Zafrullah Khan Malik, this greatly exhilarating, annual, inter-Nasra cricket competition was begun in 2012. Open to players aged 12-17, our cricket tournament caters to all 5 campuses of ETNS and includes the participation of 6 Boys' and 5 Girls' Teams: 1 of each per ETNS Campus, plus a Nasra Public School's Boys' Team. Round matches are frequently held at the UBL Ground, while the final usually takes place at National Stadium at Karachi amid thousands of frenzied, cheering fans in the audience.
Each thrilling final of the Zafrullah Khan Malik Cricket Tournament is graced by the presence of a Chief Guest of Honor. We have been supremely blessed to have had the following esteemed personalities serving as our honored guests on these occasions, awarding trophies to the champions and various prizes to the best performing players: Mr. Zaka Ashraf (Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board); Wasim Akram (former Pakistani cricketer, cricket commentator and television personality); Fawad Alam (Pakistani cricketer); Mr. Ejaz Ahmed Farooqui (President of KCCA); Mr. Jalal-ud-din (former Pakistani cricketer) and Muhammad Zaka Ashraf (president of the Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited & Ex Chairman of PCB).
In the near future, we expect to open up our cricket tournament to other schools in the city of Karachi, transcending from an inter-house to inter-school level competition, all the while spreading our motto- a message which is the very essence of our founder's philosophy: Play for Peace.
