A Sad Day for Bay Area Cricket

Around 4.45 pm on Saturday 4/19/2008 Syed Faqeer Ali died while playing cricket in Fremont. He was representing a local team in the Northern California Cricket Association (NCCA) league. He is survived by his wife and 3-year old son.

I have never met or seen Faaqer but have had the privilege of interacting with his Dad, Abid Ali a former Indian Test cricket player. I have very fond memories having played in the same cricket league in the past and naturally I was deeply disturbed to hear this news. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

NCCA is raising funds for Syed’s family. See news report in the Mercury News.
