Philanthropy - Zalmi Foundation - CSR Wing

Zalmi Foundation (ZF) is a non-profit organization, established in April 2016, with the mission to “Bring Back Smiles” by supporting and facilitating the implementation of sustainable development agenda across Pakistan in short, medium and long run. The foundation was established as a result of realization among the associates of Peshawar Zalmi – a Pakistani franchise T20 cricket team - that developmental challenges of Pakistan can be addressed through systematic and collaborative efforts from diverse stakeholders such as private sector, state institutions and civil society. With primary support from Cooperate Social Responsibility funds along with collaboration with diverse stakeholders, the ZF aims to help achieve sustainable development across the globe.

As majority of the development challenges require interdisciplinary solutions, we are committed to undertake impactful programme/projects that specifically aim to harness the synergies amongst various developmental themes. Our scope of activities involves research, implementation and advocacy regarding sustainable development themes including but not limited to youth development, women empowerment, education, health, social activism, peace and security, inclusive economic growth and international trade.

As its name suggests and having rich expertise in bringing social cohesion amongst all races through sports activities, we take pride in promoting sports and bringing peace by educating the youth of the affected areas by the harsh dials of the times.

Over the years, Zalmi Foundations has completed numerous successful projects along the lines of its key impact areas which include but not limited to education, women empowerment, sports, health, tourism and responsible citizenship.

In 2017, Peshawar Zalmi joined hands with International Rescue Committee to raise awareness of education in Pakistan. The franchise is also actively involved in Pakistan in giving sports education to children through sports camps and training all across Pakistan.[45] The team has largely contributed in charity works and as for 2017 SKMH are team's official charity. In 2016 they invited Army Public School attack survivors to watch PSL Live from the stands. Around 150 students and staff members from the school were invited to attend the inauguration ceremony of the first edition of PSL. In 2017, they took cancer patients of the SKMH for free to Dubai and gave the children a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly out of the country and make beautiful memories together.[46] Eoin Morgan member of 2017 squad donated Zalmi's Kit which he wore during the course of 2017 season to cancer patients of Shoukat Khanum Memorial Hospital.[47] In 2018, team owner Javed Afridi invited 13 young patients under treatment at SKMH to watch team's matches live from ground.[48]

And has recently  taken a Girls Cricket Camp Initiative with U.S. Consulate Lahore, which is focusing on sharing the importance of  sports involvement in the lives of vulnerable young girls from high school aged between 13 – 16 years, and aims to  increase the number of women and girls involved in sports in Pakistan. We aim to increase sports participation for  vulnerable young girls from high school, as ZF believes by taking such initiatives for Women and young girls, we can  make them enable to acquire new professional networks, develop a sense of identity and access new opportunities to become more engaged in school and community life. In addition, sports serve as a vehicle to improve women’s and  girls’ leadership roles and participation in decision-making and help to convene people across borders, cultures and  belief systems. They can promote greater tolerance and understanding among individuals and communities and can  challenge gender stereotypes and discriminatory attitudes.

The ball breaks away from the off side, hence the name 'off break'.

Captain (cricket)

Captain (cricket)

The captain of a cricket team, often referred to as the skipper, is the appointed leader, having several additional roles and responsibilities over and above those of the other players. As in other sports, the captain is usually experienced and has good communication skills, and is likely to be one of the most regular members of the team, as the captain is responsible for the team selection. Before the game the captains toss for innings. During the match the captain decides the team's batting order, who will bowl each over, and where each fielder will be positioned. While the captain has the final say, decisions are often collaborative. A captain's knowledge of the complexities of cricket strategy and tactics, and shrewdness in the field, may contribute significantly to the team's success.
