Mazhar Khan, the long-standing administrator of Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), was honoured by the Indian Premier League council on the sidelines of the final match held in Sharjah on Sunday.
Speaking to Times Sport, Khan, who in the past was conferred with a Lifetime Service Award for his "exceptional performance and services" by the International Cricket Council (ICC), said the latest honour from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is a tribute to all those involved in developing cricket in the UAE.
"It is a great feeling when you get recognition for your work," said Khan who has been in the UAE for the last 38 years.
With his help, the UAE has now established itself as cricket centre with the ICC setting up its headquarters here in the Dubai Sports City.
"The IPL has certainly carve a a niche among the cricket lovers in this country. Looking back, I feel very much satisfied," he said.
A former wicketkeeper who hails from Hyderabad, India had captained the Air India Sports Club in Dubai in the early 1990s and played a strong administrative role in developing and promoting the game in the country.
"Time passed so fast and I never realised that I have completed 38 years here. It has been a great stay here and I look forward for many more," Khan added.
