Why CricNama?

After the introduction of 3G and 4G mobile technologies along with easy market availability and general acceptability of smartphones in Pakistan, there was a dire need for quality content in Urdu for the masses. No cricket app was available that could cater for the growing information needs of fans and readers about their favorite sport.

Introducing the website and the mobile app, CricNama’s Founder and Editor Fahad Kehar said: “Pakistan is a richly multicultural and multilingual country. Language, accent, culture, tradition, lifestyle, dress, food — everything changes every hundred kilometres.”

News, analyses, debates, reports, records, videos, photos, statistics, infographics are covered by the CricNama app.

Two things that stay the same throughout the country are Urdu, which is spoken and understood in every nook and cranny, and cricket, loved by everyone no matter what their age, class, caste or color is. What CricNama does is it blends the two values together. – Mr. Fahad Kehar, CricNama’s Founder
