Cricket keeps youth away from vices Sohail Khan at TPL launch.
Dusshera is the day where good triumphs over evil. And what could be
more auspicious than to launch the Tony Premiere League (TPL), an
initiative by Daanish Hingora and Naren Moriani.
“TPL is an initiative where we, childhood friends from Bandra, come
together on the field to relive the good old days. I am not an underarm
cricketer but I am here with my friends” says Sohail Khan, the owner of
Mumbai Heroes, when he unveiled the TPL Trophy in the presence of
Daanish Hingora, Narein Moriani, Rahul Kanal and the team owners of TPL
at the players’ auction at Taj Land’s End, Bandra.
Add Daanish Hingora and Naren Moriani, Founders and Team Owners of
TPL, “Today in this era of mobile and computer games, cricket comes like
a breath of fresh air”.
Avers Rahul Kanal, Team Onwer, I Love Mumbai, and a pillar of
strength to TPL, “Cricket becomes a platform for us to unite people and
have fun on the field as well”.
Lauding Aaditya Thackeray’s move to have the exhibition match between
Yuva Mumbai and Mumbai Heroes on November 3 followed by the TPL
matches, Sohail Khan also seconds Daanish Hingora and Naren Moriani’s
opinion. “I completely agree with Daanish and Naren on their thought of
the need for cricket to precede over computer games. I am a father of
two children and I encourage my children to go out and play. Games keep
you away from vices. And Aaditya Thackeray with his move to promote
games among youth is doing just that. We are with him at every step and
as a youth icon, he inspires by example”. Interestingly, Tony Premiere
League (TPL), as the premiere underarm league of Mumbai that has set an
example for many to follow as well.
