Resident Saiyed yearns to spread cricket in USA
USA resident Saiyed Ahmed might have left Bangladesh for Detroit in 2002 but has stayed true to his cricket roots. He and his fellow friends are spreading the game to wider audience and teaching the younger generation about the finer details of cricket. However in Detroit’s “Banglatown” Saiyed often finds kids playing and sometimes falling and hurting themselves on the concrete. This inspired him to look for dedicated space for the kids to play in. His continuous hard work finally paid off early last month with the arrival of a new cricket field, besides the the Lasky Recreation Center at the corner of Charles and Fenelon streets. “We're very happy to have a cricket ground here and we're very delighted,” Saiyed told theneighborhoods.org. “The other day, a few guys came here (and) they took selfies with the ground. This is like a picnic stop for (locals)…this is (where people come to take an) evening walk. “A lot of people (have asked) me what do you get out of it?” “I said, I get joy out of it, even though I take off work…even though I'm not getting any fame or anything out of it, I'm getting joy out of it. Looking at this cricket field maybe five, 10 years I would not be able to play at that time. I'll be sitting out and watching the kids play and that would be a joy for me. So I'm just basically setting up for the future.”
