Bedi invites budding talents to join month-long camp in Nangal
Former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi's trust will be conducting a month-long coaching clinic in Nangal, Punjab, inviting the talented U-14, U-16, and U-19 cricketers interested in learning the subtle nuances of the game. "The Bishan Bedi Cricket Coaching Trust' (BBCCT) will again be holding a camp for the budding cricketers.
The focus will be on honing their cricketing skills for the longer duration of the game. Not only cricketing skills, the camp will also ensure that young boys are imparted with right cricketing values," Bedi said today. Bedi also said that his former teammates Erapalli Prasanna and Syed Kirmani are likely to join him during the month-long camp.
"It will be held at a private facility in Nangal area away from the city. I want those boys to apply who have played a bit of cricket. I mean at least played a decent club level, or may have played district or junior state sides. "This camp is not exactly for the beginners. It is for those, who have already played the game at decent junior level and are ready to soak in information and tips that we give," said India's greatest ever left-arm spinner.
For the youngsters, who are interested to enroll for the month-long camp, they can contact and drop in a mail at email@example.com. "The ones interested can contact us, the registration process will be done in Delhi," he added.
