“Each coach can influence around 20 people a year if they so wish,” says ACC Development Officer Rumesh Ratnayake, “I’m delighted to see that another good batch is coming up in Nepal.”

15 aspiring coaches are the latest to have been through a Level 1 Coaching Course in Nepal this month.

Among the group in Kathmandu were national players Janaki Bhatt, Basant Regmi, Mamta Thapa and Sharad Vesawkar as well as former national player Raj Kumar Pradhan. They were taken through the four-day program by Rumesh and current Nepal coach Pubudu Dassanayake and former national captain Binod Das who recently went through a Level III ACC coaching course.

“Along with the national players, there were some fine club cricketers too, from around the regions of Nepal and one hopes that they will be able to develop a fresh generation of cricketers who come to enjoy the game and play with sound techniques,” says the ACC Development Officer.
