After a successful hunt for bowlers last year, The Sports Gurukul has planned it's second edition of the cricket talent hunt at the Ajmera i-Land Sports Academy in Wadala next week.

The good news is that this edition of the event is not limited to bowlers alone, but will include batsmen and all rounders too. The even — Rising of a Cricket Star powered by MiD DAY will offer aspiring young cricketers the opportunity to win a scholarship to train under India’s 1983 World Cup-winning pace bowler Balvinder Singh Sandhu at the Ajmera i-Land Academy in Wadala.

Sandhu is one of country’s first coaches to procure a Level 3 coaching certification and has been working closely with players from some of the country’s top first-class teams like Mumbai, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa and Baroda, among others. With his coaching experience spanning two decades, Sandhu has contributed to the development of numerous first-class and India players and is now keen to unearth talent at the grassroot level.

“A talent hunt is the perfect place to see young players of varied skills performing at the same time. The idea is to catch them young and train them hard,” said Sandhu. The talent hunt, which is free and open to all, will be held on November 7 and 8 at Ajmera’s i-Land Academy in Wadala. Day 1 will have the elimination round, while Day 2 will have the second round and final selection. For details contact 8082376677 / 9664876677 / 9220215243.
