ISLAMABAD, Jul 15 (APP): Pakistan went 3-0 down in the Squash
Series against Egypt played here at Mushaf Complex on Saturday.
As many as three matches were played on the first day of the
series. In the first match Egypt’s Zahed Mohamed beat Pakistan’s

Federal Minister for Inter-provincial Coordination (IPC) Mian Riaz
Hussain Pirzada who was the chief guest at the occasion awarded
trophies to the winners.
In a bid to revive international squash events in Pakistan,
Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) has been putting tremendous efforts
for the promotion of the game in the country. Air Marshal Shahid
Akhtar Alvi, Senior Vice President, PSF, Former Squash Legend Qamar
Zaman and others were also present on the occasion.
The Pakistan v Egypt series would conclude on July 16. PSF
would bag multiple gains from these events.
This would not only project soft and safe image of Pakistan to
the international world but would also provide optimum exposure to
junior players who would take part in the World Junior Individual
Championship at New Zealand later this July.
