Mudassar Bukhari is a Dutch international cricketer, who made his debut for the Dutch national team in July 2007. He has represented the team at both ODI & T20 international level. In September 2016, Bukhari announced his retirement from four-day cricket & 50-over cricket. Recognizing the struggles to choose cricket for young players in an associate cricket nation, Bukhari has started his own cricket-coaching academy. His focus for the youngsters is not only to pass on the skills he has learnt over the years but to also help the talented players progress through the process to national cricket.
“It’s an honor to be an ambassador for Eshaki Foundation, a charity that has the same beliefs and vision as I have for the next stage of my career. We’re focused on supporting young people from an early age to develop not only their technical sports skills but also their key personal skills/values. Furthermore, ensuring that a solid education is attained needs to be seen as a necessity for all young people. I’ve benefitted from having those values and foundations instilled in me from a young age, and I hope that through my academy and through Eshaki Foundation I can help young people achieve success.”
