Coach Educators Batumalai and Muniandy (front row) frame the coach candidates at Kinrara

25 young men and women, some of them national team players, most of them local school teachers, have taken part in the latest Malaysian Cricket Association Level I Coaching Course. Supported by the National Sports Council, the three-day program took place at the Kinrara Oval, with many of the participants, some from as far away as Sabah and Sarawak, staying at the dormitory attached to the ground for the duration.

The course instructors were national coach Bilal Asad and Level II Coach Educators Ramani Batumalai and M. Muniandy. “Having so many teachers there meant that they understood our teaching principles. They felt that they were learning as they went along. There were lots of practical sessions focussing on how to deliver skills,” says Mr. Batumalai. The teachers were from cricket-playing primary and secondary schools across Malaysia and were all proposed to the MCA by their State Education Boards.
