Budding cricketers, both boys and girls, from as many as 16 countries are training under the expert guidance of Rahul Dravid at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. The program is organized under the tutelage of BCCI, the external affairs, and sports ministry in which youngsters from 16 commonwealth nations are receiving training at the NCA from October 1 and would continue till the end of this month.
It was announced by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi in April last year at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in London. Some of the best coaches from India are imparting cricketing knowledge to these young cricketers under Rahul Dravid’s observation.
“A customized training program has been made for each participant. The challenge has been to assess each of these Under 16 aged cricketers coming from varied backgrounds and countries, establishing their level of cricketing competence, designing appropriate programs and then delivering them,” the BCCI said in a release.
