AMIN SAINI, Abhsihekk Verma, Zeeshan Ali, Premal Jain and Akshay Sharma, who were little known before the start of the Dr Govind Narayan Singh memorial inter-school cricket carnival, have not only performed well so far in the tournament but also got a platform for their future. Their excellent performance with the blade and leather has proved that Bhopal has immense talent in cricket.
Though several national cricket tournaments are organised every year, in the absence of any major cricket tournament for school students the budding cricketers do not get an opportunity to demonstrate their talents.
The demonstration of excellent cricket by the budding players in the ongoing tournament made possible for them to excel in the open cricket.
“I have seen immense potential in some players participating in this tournament; they will be given an opportunity in the division teams”, said Bhopal Divisional Cricket Association (BDCA) Chairman Dhruv Narayan Singh.
The tournament is being organised in memory of his father Dr Govind Narayan Singh. Even the spectators applauded the performance of the players. “School level cricket should be organised on good standards as it is the base where students learn; such tournaments are good for the school students”, said Prakash, a spectator. He suggested that more such tournaments should be organised on such standards.
Even the organising committee took a keen interest and showed inclination towards helping such players. “We have a close observation on the performance of such players; they have a bright future”, said organising committee secretary and BDCA vice president Aruneshwar Singhdeo.
