Nangarhar’s Behsood Stadium named after late Najeeb Tarakai
Afghanistan Cricket Board leadership have decided to name the Behsood Cricket Stadium in Nangarhar after the late Najeeb Tarakai who lost his life after a tragic car accident a few days ago. The decision was taken considering the fact that Tarakai was loved by the nation and had represented Afghanistan as a national player with pride and valor.
ACB chairman Mr. Farhan Yusefzai stated: "There is no doubt that Najeeb Tarakai was a man of high morals and a great asset to the country. We are desolated and saddened with his loss. He will always be remembered and will pray for his soul.”
Mr. Yusefzai further added that all the national players, including Najeeb Tarakai, have represented Afghanistan at the world stage with pride and continuously strived to uplift the name of the country. In fact, it is their hard work that has brought success in cricket and a sense of pride and joy to the people of Afghanistan.
Mr. Yusefzai concluded, "It is important we appreciate his sacrifices and efforts, which is why today I want to name the Behsood Cricket Stadium in Nangarhar province after him. Therefore, the stadium shall be called as NajeebUllah Tarakai Cricket Stadium henceforth.”
The first phase of NajeebUllah Tarakai Cricket Stadium is almost completed and the subsequent second and third phases will commence soon.
