SIALKOT: Sufi Abdul Jalil, famed as Chacha Cricket, left Sialkot on Tuesday for England to support the Pakistan cricket team in matches of 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.

Scores of people, most of them exporters of sports goods, saw him off at a ceremony held at the Sialkot International Airport.

Chacha Cricket is a familiar face to cricket fans in Pakistan and other cricket loving nations because of his antics and untiring support for the Pakistani team in cricket grounds. TV cameras focus him in the moments of stress or sensation during a match.

Before boarding the plane, Chacha Jalil said that the Pakistan Cricket team would come up to the expectations of the nation as the team had a great talent.
