R.P. Singh will be inaugurating Bihar’s first international standard cricket academy in Patna on 29th of July

Patna is all set to witness for the first time an international standard cricket academy, “ACA- Anshul Cricket Academy” in town. Well known cricketer Rudra Pratap Singh, commonly known as R.P.Singh, will inaugurate this venture at Shiwala, Patna on 29th of July.

Anshul Cricket Academy is first of its kind in Patna as the academy is going to introduce both male and female cricket coaching facility in campus. This is a good news for the girls of the city and state who aspire to become cricketers. This is the first time that female cricketers of Bihar will also have access to world-class coaching facility in Patna itself. This also breaks the common stereotype that cricket is only a boys’ game.

Other than breaking stereotype, Anshul Cricket Academy is raising the bar really high for other cricket academies in town. The academy has 9 pitches for practice so that students can get more time to spend on pitch. Budding cricketers from the age of 8 years to the of 23 are eligible to enroll in the academy.

The academy is established under the guidelines of Bihar Cricket Association (BCA) affiliated to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Also there are high chances of getting selected into the Bihar State Team based on the performance directly from the academy.

While talking to PatnaBeats, Rahul Singh- director of Anshul Cricket Academy, said,

Our dream is to see greater number of players from Bihar of getting selecting in upcoming seasons of IPL through Anshul Cricket Academy.

Players will be getting an international exposure, as international coaches will be visiting faculty at Anshul Cricket Academy. The Advisory Committee of the academy includes Aftab Habib (former Test Cricketer of England), Tatenda Taibu (former Test Cricketer and ODI captain of Zimbabwe) and MD Manjural Islam (former Test and ODI Cricketer of Bangladesh).

Various amenities offered by the academy includes transportation as well. So the students of the academy won’t have to worry about the distance as the academy itself will provide the transportation facility.

With astro-turf pitch, bowling machine, video analysis of players, under light practice, gymnasium and so many other things to offer, Anshul Cricket Academy is going to bring a new cricket culture in Patna.
