They were the heroes who made our community proud in the sports arena for many decades. They were exemplary, committed and inspirational sportsmen. Our young and upcoming sportsmen should emulate them. Please recite Sura-e-Fateha for the maghferat of the departed souls of Marhum Abdulrasul Virjee, Marhum Raza Sherali and all the Marhumeens.
