As part of their plans to popularise the game in the country, the Al Hail Cricket team is participating in the Oman Sports Exhibition and Conference, which began at the Oman International Exhibition Centre in Seeb.
Speaking to Times Sport, Moulabaksh Al Balushi, the manager of the Al Hail team, noted that the team's participation is important for bringing cricket into the limelight.
"The reason we are participating is to spread awareness of the game and to increase the recognition of our brand," Moulabaksh said.
The three-day event, which concludes on Feb. 6, will also be attended by 30 sports bodies, professional clubs, global brands, and sports goods suppliers. "We have received a good response from the audience on the first day of the exhibition, and we are looking forward to the next two days," he stated.
"Most of [the visitors] are locals, and they are not very [familiar with] the game, so this exhibition has certainly given us a platform to promote the game in a major way.
"We would like to thank the Ministry of Sports Affairs for giving us this opportunity," Moulabaksh said.
Earlier in the day, Sheikh Saad bin Mohammed bin Said Al Mardhuof Al Saadi, minister of sports affairs, visited the Al Hail exhibition stall. "It is a kind gesture from the minister, and we must also thank Dad Mohammed Al Balushi of Oman Cricket for visiting our stall," he added.
