Shah Sahib was a great supporter of Cricket. He personally groomed many youngsters who represent Pakistan. St. Patrick High School, Karachi, can not forget his support in all aspects during his son's study in the school. My heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and supporters. Sir, may your soul rest in peace, Amen.

Must appreciate all his efforts for sports. IF a Sports City is to be made in Karachi (like Dubai Sports City), it should be named MA Shah Sports City.
