Four Sierra Leonean cricket players are expected to go to India to undergo three weeks training starting from February to end in March 2017.
A letter from the Botswana Cricket Association, which is the apparent sponsor of the training, states that the training is aimed at developing and exposing the players to better style of play. The Chief Executive Officer of the Bostwana Association, Girish Ramakrishna said the training would be of immense benefit to the players.
The training programme will include batting, and bowling under the watchful eyes of a high profile coach; video analysis, fitness, actual games-T20 or 50 overs, personality development sessions, etc. for a fee of RS 75000.
The players would probably need to pay for their own tickets, while feeding, accommodation and internal transportation would be taken care of by the hosts.
According to the Sierra Leone Cricket Association they are looking forward to sending at least one senior player and the rest will be U-19 players as they are the future Cricketers of the country.
