“Due to the work and hours that Herschel puts in, I have seen the wonderful improvement in the junior’s cricket over the years,” explains ICA’s Michael Barnett.
In addition Gutman was the man behind Israel successful campaign to win a Flicx Pitch in the ICC Europe competition asking “How has Cricket changed your life”.
