Mohammad Azharuddin, the former India captain and Rizwan-uz-Zaman turned out for a club side in Glendale Heights, Illinois, yesterday to raise money for flood victims in Gujarat, India.

The Federation of Indian Associations hosted the Peace Cup. Vice President Keerthi Ravoori of Chicago said the organization had two objectives: to strengthen relations between local Indians and Pakistanis, and to raise funds for the victims in Gujarat, India.

He said he hoped the match would spread excitement about cricket in the United States, particularly in the Midwest.

“This is the first time we’re hosting this cricket match, and we hope to bring harmony and better understandings within these two countries,” Ravoori said.
