Cricket Revolution picks up Runner Up Award at APICTA

December 17, 2009 at 7:38 pm 9 comments

When Mindstorm Studios CEO Babar Ahmed expressed his inability to attend the Asia Pacific ICT Awards in Melbourne, many of us were quite upset because we knew that Cricket Revolution was a sure winner. We had great faith in the product and felt that the visibility would be good for this creative company and its team.

Imran Zia and I then discussed the possibility of having someone make the presentation on behalf of Mindstorm Studios. Voila! Emerged Farhan Masood, of Go-Green fame, who was going to be in Melbourne to present his product “Face Access” in the Security category.

Farhan agreed to cover for Babar without the least hesitation. So Babar gave him a detailed briefing and off he flew into the sunset.

According to Zafar Khan who witnessed his presentation, Farhan made a great pitch. Hence we were not surprised when the judges selected Cricket Revolution as the Runner Up.

Farhan should be congratulated on doing a fabulous job for a company that he has not had much to do with before this APICTA representation came up. Such cooperation, such spirit and the willingness to help each other, is what the country and the industry needs. Thank you Farhan. May God bless you. And Congratulations Babar Ahmed to you and your Mindstorm Studios team for a great product. Of course all of us expect a lavish party on our return home. 🙂

    Thank you Farhan and thank you Jehan and P@SHA for making this a success for all of us! Wonderful job by Farhan! When I spoke with him during our presentation discussion, he said, “Don’t worry yaar, I’m THE expert at last minute stuff”. No kidding! 🙂 Thanks again Farhan and P@SHA for all your support without which none of this would be possible.

    Anything for Pakistan ! Always at ur service. I love cricket revolution, an amazing product needs an outstanding recognition, and I would love stay an official ambassador for it. Every time I talk about it, it makes me proud. An interesting fact, as i wear the Pakistan Medal (pin) all the time, any Aussie will look at it and started talking to me abt cricket and Pakistan, had been promoting it at trams, beaches and shopping stores 🙂 Its just not our success… Its the success of Pakistan and I am happy to be the catalyst in it. Pakistan Zindabad !

    Great job Jehan. You are certainly helping to put Pakistan on the IT map – scouring through our hidden resource pool and finding one winner after another.

    Farhan – great job. Get in touch next time you are in Dubai.

    Babar – have heard a lot about your game – mainly from Jehan. Hope to meet up sometime.

    @Babar khali khali “thank you” will not do. We insist on a party to celebrate. Right Farhan, Imran, Zafar, Sultan, Jawwad?

    @Irfan Lucky for me there are so many talented stars out there that I don’t have to look far. Highlighting them is an honour and a pleasure for me.
