”Lesi isethulo sebhuku lekhilikithi esithemba ukuthi nizolithokozela. Leli bhuku liqondiswe kulabo abafisa ukudlala lo mdlalo wekhilikithi.

 Abafana namantombazane abafisa ukudlala ikhilikithi bazosizakala kakhulu ngaleli bhuku, ngoba libachazela lo mdlalo ngolimi lwabo.

 Lona ngumdlalo odlalwa abashwibayo nalabo abashaya ibhola ngomphini. Likuchazela zonke izigaba zomdlalo, amagama asetsthenziswayo  izindawo abadlali okumele bazazi kanye nemithetho nemigomo elawula lo mdlalo.

Leli bhuku ngelenu. Lo mdlalo ngowenu.”

“As I continued to turn the pages of this wonderful beginner’s guide to our beautiful game, I reflected on my incredible journey in cricket. It took me right back to where my love for the game started and I believe this book will not only create a sound educational platform for every future cricketer but also create a real love for the game if fully utilized for record keeping and the gathering of signatures.”

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you and your team on promoting cricket at grassroot level at schools.  The school  Curriculum (Life Skills –  Foundation Phase) requires Educators / Coaches to teach Basic skills in Cricket . I would like to believe that the “Howzatt Cricket  Record Book ” would serve as an excellent educational tool / resource at schools.  The language is  user friendly and  the illustrations are bold and appealing.  I am  sure this  book will try to ignite the passion and confidence in those who would like to teach the sport but do not know where to start off.
