ITANAGAR, 11 Mar: With an aim to provide world-class cricket coaching and to promote young talent in the northeastern region of India, the Cricket Academy of Pathans (CAP) on Friday announced the launch of its centre in Itanagar, in the presence of ace cricketer Yusuf Pathan and CAP managing director Harmeet Vasdev.
With a strong on-ground curriculum and a team of experts providing high-level cricket coaching, the academy will employ state-of-the-art coaching techniques to teach and develop budding cricketers in the region.
Taking forward the passion and vision of the Pathan brothers and expanding its presence throughout India, this is the 28th centre of the CAP.
CAP director Yusuf Pathan said: “We are providing every possible assistance to the aspiring cricketers and expect to become the first preference for all the ambitious and aspirant cricketers in Itanagar and surrounding region. Through our world-class coaching, our students are now getting selected for district- and state-level matches. We have plans to open more academies in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities which will assist the budding cricketers to get trained in the right manner.”
Across India, 80+ students from the CAP centres have already been selected and have played at various state- and district-levels.
“In the ongoing Ranji Trophy, one of our players, Yashasvi Rishav from CAP Patna, who is representing Bihar state team, has scored a brilliant hundred. More than six players from CAP Patna were selected to represent Bihar state team in the Cooch Behar Trophy and the CK Nayudu Trophy last year. Seven players from CAP Jaipur represented their district team in Rajasthan. CAP is proud that an increasing number of students are being selected for various district- and state-level camps. These success stories are indeed an indication of our commitment to help our students realise their potential,” Pathan said.
Vasdev explained the training process and highlighted the strong points which have helped the CAP become one of the leading cricket academies in the country.
“To record and track the progress of CAP students, an in-house ‘CAP app’ is developed. It also helps coaches to organise training and coaching sessions with the students. Very soon, we will be organising an interactive session with the Pathan brothers for our students on the app. We want to help as many cricket aspirants as possible to give them an opportunity who love the sport and need access to world-class coaching infrastructure,” he said.
He added: “Moving forward, we are planning tours of other countries for giving match exposure under different environment to the young buds. We are also planning to organise an all-India CAP tournament where every CAP centre will participate. The academy also focuses on nutrition, psychology and the overall physical development of the students. We are aiming to launch 20 more academies in the cities of Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Srinagar, Visakhapatnam, Coimbatore, Agra, Salem, Guntur, Malihabad, Gulbarga, and Berhampur, and have pledged to invest Rs 2 crores towards this goal. We hope to become the preferred academy for cricket coaching across the country and we are committed to it.”
