Sixteen teenagers from across Thailand attended a selection camp at the resplendent Prem Tinsulanonda Center in Chiang Mai in the hope of proving themselves worthy of selection in the national side. With each day starting at 6.30 AM and continuing until sunset, the emphasis was on fitness. The camp was meant to push the young cricketers and to impress upon them the level of fitness required to excel at international level.
All of the boys were given fitness programs to follow back at home. Follow up fitness tests will be done in early December.
Coaches Goodchap, Dhanuka and Hottinger were impressed with the commitment shown by the squad, and believe Thailand can make a big impact in the ACC U15 Challenge Cup in December.
