WANA, October 30: The Inter-Schools Sports Gala, organised in South Waziristan Agency after 13 years, has concluded.

The Wana Doag School batted first and scored 145 runs, while Chagmalai High School lost the match as it couldn’t chase down the target and scored 140 runs in a final match at the Chagmalai High School.

Players from 13 schools participated in the sports event that continued for eight consecutive days.

Sports officer in the agency, Mr Taj Muhammad, told TNN that authorities had solved various sports related problems recently.

“The biggest problem in Waziristan was few playgrounds. The establishment of a new stadium at Mandana has been approved and construction work is in progress there. Now the approval for a playground in Chagmalai has also been received. An agency sports complex has been set up at Wana. We also plan to set up playgrounds in all of the tehsils in the days to come,” he added.

The Assistant Political Officer (APO) of South Waziristan, Mr Nawab Khan, later distributed prizes among the players at the concluding ceremony.
