Parsi club serves cricket at 85
Parsi club turns 85, continues to serve cricket
Dadar Parsi Zoroastrian Sports Club (DPZSC) is one of the well known maidan clubs in the city.
It may not be on par with the traditional Dadar Union Sporting, Parsee Cyclist, Shivaji Park Gymkhana or the three gymkhanas at the Kennedy Seaface — Hindu, Islam, Catholic or Parsee — which have rich cricketing history but the Matunga’s Dadkar Maidan club is still sought after in Mumbai.
The club, which came into being in 1926 under the leadership of a cricket-loving Parsi —Jahangir Pithawala — celebrated its 85th anniversary on Monday.
