According to Abbasi, the cricket match was played inNakkar Mojwal, a village located in the sub-division of Birote Khurd in District Abbottabad.
The video shows young boys playing cricket in the mountain terrain. Given the unique location of the pitch, the placement of batsman, bolwers and fielders is not like the standard placement in a cricket ground or even in a usual street match.
The winning team can be seen celebrating after scoring a winning shot.
