BCCI set to expand footprint in Northeast India


Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah on January 8 assured the two northeastern states of Arunachal and Sikkim that help would be provided to expand cricket in the region.

In a tweet Shah said, “Humbled and honoured to visit both Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim. Assured all North-Eastern states of @BCCI’’s support to enhance capacity building, cricketing infrastructure, NCA coaches and technical staff, training methodologies & medical facilities. We are in this together.”

The BCCI secretary met the Chief Ministers of the two states to help build base and tap the potential sports players in the Northeast.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has projected to set up more flagship programmes across the Northeast spectrum.
