Dr Mitchell, who is a trustee of the Pahar Trust, took the plastic cricket sets out after seeing the game played while on previous projects in the country.
He said: “I had seen people playing before but there seemed to be a real lack of equipment. A number of the schools seemed to have reasonable ability and I thought we need to build on this.”
