For women’s cricket, the CSS-Whatmore Centre for Cricket at the Sri Ramachandra Medical College in Chennai, is set to propose a plan to the BCCI to streamline coaching at grassroots level.
The facility, with former Australian cricketer and renowned coach Dav Whatmore as the director, will soon be in talks with the BCCI on hosting the Indian women’s cricket team as well as other state teams for their pre-season, pre-tournament and summer training camps at its centre.
M Sanjay, head of cricket operations at the CSS centre, said that they have discussed this venture with a few former top women cricketers such as Shantha Rangaswamy and Shubhangi Kulkarni. “We will make a presentation to BCCI and Diana Edulji (who is also a member of the Committee of Administrators CoA) soon. This is the right time to support women’s cricket. Our intention is to ensure that women cricketers get all the necessary facilities that the men get,” Sanjay told TOI on Monday.
