The popularity and craze of cricket are well known around the world. But, winning for that craze is an icing on the cake. UAE Exchange, the leading global remittance, foreign exchange and payment solutions brand, today felicitated Muhammad Khalil, the first winner of its #CricketCraze Quiz Contest in Bahrain.


“Like most people, I am also crazy about cricket and do not miss any matches when my country plays. I have also been participating in many cricket-related contests. So when UAE Exchange announced this contest, my family was not surprised when I told them that I would be participating in it. Winning the contest is one thing but being felicitated in front of everyone is something I never expected. My association with the brand is not new as I have been using their financial services but this experience is one of the most memorable ones. I am glad on my win and thank them for being there whenever I needed solutions to my financial needs,” said Muhammad Khalil after winning the Sony HTCT 80 Sound Bar. Muhammad hails from Pakistan and has been working in Bahrain since 2014.

Congratulating the winner, Vineesh Kumar, General Manager, UAE Exchange – Bahrain said: “We always seek for newer ways to connect with people and cricket is one sport that connects people instantly. This was evident with the overwhelming response we received for the contest. I thank the participants for their enthusiastic participation and congratulate Muhammad on his win and keeping the craze of cricket alive.”

The online contest which ran in Bahrain, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) received close to 10,000 entries.
