Yasir Arafat joins our team as a Street Child United Ambassador

Posted on the 25th June 2020

Street Child United are delighted to welcome former Pakistan cricketer Yasir Arafat to our team as an Ambassador.

Yasir, who played over 450 First Class and List-A matches during his 23-year career, had spells at five English counties, as well as in his native Pakistan and the Australian Big Bash.

Yasir said ‘I’m delighted to support Street Child United, a vision which is close to my heart. Being from Pakistan, where cricket for street children is the norm, we often see these children disregarded. This exceptional charity works to transform their development and provides experiences that impact the rest of their lives. I’m excited to be part of their upcoming Street Child Cricket World Cup in 2023.’

Street Child United are thrilled to have Yasir’s support and we are excited to work together closely in the years to come.
