Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 21: Humiliating defeats of Jammu and Kashmir cricket teams in different tournaments during the last year have authenticated allegations that all claims to develop sports in the Union Territory are confined only on papers like other schemes. In November 2020, the Jammu and Kashmir Government, with much publicity, had a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Suresh Raina Cricket Academy to develop budding cricketers of J&K to national and international level.
While signing the MoU it was announced that aim of this agreement was to launch a comprehensive training programme at a professional level. Ace Cricketer Suresh Raina will hone the skills of the talented youth from every nook and corner of the UT.
After signing of MoU, a selection trial was held in Jammu in December 2020 in which 500 youth from Doda, Kishtwar, Reasi, Rajouri, and other areas participated.
After the passing of more than one year, no progress has been made in the MoU. Neither Suresh Raina has conducted more trail nor J&K government has cleared its position.
It is widely believed that like other schemes launched by the UT government during the last one year, this scheme was also confined only on papers.
Except getting publicity nothing concrete has been done to explore the talent of the budding cricketers of Jammu and Kashmir.
Local coaches be it Jammu or Kashmir, are giving coaching to the budding players but the incumbent government is not ready to recognize services of local coaches.
In November 2020, The J&K Sports Council had entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Suresh Raina Cricket Academy to develop budding cricketers of J&K to the National & International level with a comprehensive training programme at a professional level.
The MoU was signed in the presence of Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha and International Cricketer, Suresh Raina here at Civil Secretariat.
The Lt Governor had observed that the initiative will provide an opportunity to budding cricketers to hone their skills and to showcase their talent in various levels of national & international competitive tournaments.
Complimenting the ace cricketer, the Lt Governor said that Suresh Raina would be a dream mentor for young talents from J&K who are working hard to get into the big leagues will be immensely benefitted by this collaboration. With experienced International Cricketers like Suresh Raina, who is an inspiration for millions of aspiring cricketers, mentoring the youth of J&K, I am hopeful we will soon have many players competing to get into the National team, he added.
It was informed that the J&K Sports Council shall make available supporting infrastructure for usage by Suresh Raina Cricket Academy to impart coaching to the youth of J&K to promote excellence in sports. The MoU provides for daily upkeep & maintenance of sports facilities and the equipment by Suresh Raina Cricket Academy to be allowed for usage by J&K Sports Council. The MoU shall run for a period of one year and shall be renewable on mutual understanding.
