25 boys and 25 girls from 14 different provinces, the best prospects from the recently concluded Youth National Games in Thailand have gathered in Bangkok for a three-week cricket camp under the supervision of Youth Development Coach Shan Kader. The aim is to create squads for next year’s ACC U-16 event and the U-19 in 2015.
ACC Development Officer for Thailand Venkatapathi Raju is impressed by the scheme, “Thailand is very fortunate that it has cricketers who are not only willing to learn but also able to give the time to camps like this.” Thailand’s women have risen from beginners in 2007 to ACC Women’s Champions in 2013 and U-19 Women’s Championship Finalists in 2012, and the boys are in the U-16 and U-19 Elite Divisions.
