Harbans Singh, a past president of the Singapore Cricket Association, passed away on 25 Feb 2023.
The 92-year-old Harbans was a stalwart of SCA and led the front for several years. He played for Singapore Chinese Recreation Club and was in charge in difficult times when the sport lacked sponsorship and funds.
“Harbans would periodically call to ask about local cricket development,” said SCA president Mahmood Gaznavi. “He was very interested in following the growth and progress of the sport. We recognise that he was in charge at a time the sport struggled to attract sufficient numbers and he put in a great deal of effort to lead.”
Harbans was an Honorary Life Member of SCA. He was also an Honorary Life Member of the prestigious Marylebone Cricket Club, a club that has considerable global influence over cricket.
The funeral and cremation will be held at Mandai at 7.30pm at Hall 2 today [26 Feb 2023].
