Stani Army fans would have noticed the lack of activity on the website over the last couple of months. Just to let everyone know, we’re back now after our short break. Whilst most of the members were away attending the World Cup in Sri Lanka, I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful lands of Kashmir and Pakistan.
Yet worry not, as the whole team is back now and making plans for the next international tournament which is the Champions Trophy in England and Wales starting June next year. We will be posting updates on our plans for the tournament periodically.
Fans will also be pleased to know that photos of Mr Pakistan and Stani Army at the World Cup in Sri Lanka will be posted in due course more »
