New Delhi, October 17: The Board of Control for Cricket in India, in conjunction with the ministries of sports and external affairs, is currently hosting participants from 16 different countries in order to provide them with an opportunity to train with some of the best cricketers in India.

On April 19 earlier this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London had announced that India will organise cricket training for boys and girls under the age of 16. BCCI Shares Ravi Shastri and Rahul Dravid’s Photo, Twitterati Mercilessly Troll Them for Calling Team India Head Coach ‘Great’.
