Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Tuesday met Umran Malik, the fast bowler from Jammu who got selected in the Indian team for the T20 series against South Africa starting next month.

While appreciating Malik’s hard work, Sinha said that his achievement is a proud moment for Jammu & Kashmir which will motivate and inspire many more youth from the UT to follow his footsteps and bring laurels to J&K and the country.

“As a sporting genius and a global sporting icon, Umran will continue to inspire our youth, not only in sports but also in other areas of human endeavour,” Sinha said.

“Jammu Kashmir has the potential to achieve excellence in international sporting events and the administration is committed to popularise a robust sports culture among the children and the youth. I call upon our youth to develop a strong winner’s instinct,” Sinha said.
