Off-season has began and most of the players find a way to ensure they don’t lose touch with cricket. Some opt for indoor nets to practice, some opt for county stints abroad or some opt for paid cricket tours. In an initiative by Omtex Sports which is a leading sports manufacturing company in India, they have arranged a tour to Bangalore for the Under 19 Boys.
The 12 boys which have been selected will get a chance to play high-quality professional level matches at the Padukone-Dravid Center for sports excellence. It’s a 7 days all inclusive tour with flights, hotel accommodation and meals for the selected U19 players.
On day 1 there will be a practice session at the “6 Academy” followed by two 50 over matches on Day 2 and Day 3. The 4th day will be saved for sightseeing, swimming sessions and practice while a 2 day Test match will be conducted on the 5th and the 6th day.
The opposition team would be highly trained players of the Dravid-Padukone academy and it will certainly be a memorable and enriching experience for all the young cricketers.
