Subodh Yadav – Young Cricket Coach from the Land of Najafgarh, Delhi
Well, Najafgarh is one part of Delhi which has become world famous courtesy our swashbuckling opener Virender Sehwag who hails from the same place. Najafgarh even though a small district is always hustling and bustling with sporting activities with cricket taken very seriously by the aspiring youngsters. One such young and emerging coach from Najafgarh is Subodh Yadav who is providing cricket coaching to aspiring cricketers from his district.
Subodh is all but 23 years old but staying connected to the game brought him into coaching. A professional cricketer himself, Subodh even played for Jharkhand U16 State team but had to quit playing professional cricket due to an ankle injury which forced him out of the game & that is how S.Y Warriors Cricket Academy in Najafgarh came into place.
Speaking with Cricketgraph, Subodh shared “I played state level cricket myself but one injury which I am facing till now means I can’t play professional cricket anymore. However, whatever knowledge I have gained in all these years, I want to pass it on to the young cricketers of Najafgarh and hopfully they will go on to play higher levels and make our Najafgarh proud again like Sehwag sir.
SY Warriors Cricket Academy in Najafgarh is exactly located near Power House and it boasts of all the modern facilities which a cricket academy requires. Before lockdown, Subodh used to have 70-80 students practicing at his club while numbers have dwindled in the recent past. However, with the season about to begin, Subodh is hopeful that his academy will regain full flow. The academy also provides hostel facility for boys and girls, team room, 2 turf cement wickets to ensure best quality training. Subodh who is himself pursuing ICC Level 1 & ASCA course is also offering strength and conditioning training at his academy. The academy also has indoor facility with bowling machine which Subodh plans to begin soon.
Here’s wishing Subodh all the luck for a great coaching career.
