Morocco take cricket into schools

The Moroccan Royal Cricket Board, in its development plan, has started introducing cricket in schools

The Moroccan Royal Cricket Board, in its development plan, has started introducing cricket in schools. In April cricket was introduced in five schools in Rabat, Sale, temara and now cricket has been taken to an other city named Marrakech. On July 5, cricket was taught to about 300 kids in Marrakech, and the players of the Australian team who were visiting Morocco from June 29 to July 9 assisted the board in coaching the kids.

    I understand there exist a decent Stadium and a few ODI internationals have already been played involving Pakistan, South Africa and Sri-Lanka in Tangers around the lates 90's.

    The Moroccan Royal Cricket Board should perhaps introduce Cricket at schools there perhaps?
