Ravichandran Ashwin’s Gen-Next Cricket Academy is set to spread its wings, by operating from more centres in Chennai.
Youngsters can train at select branches of Pon Vidyashram schools in the city from September 30, stated a Press release.
The three signature programmes of Gen-Next (Weekend, Vision 20 and High-Performance Centre) would be available for the players to choose from, the release said, PTI has reported.
Gen-Next’s chief mentor Ashwin said, “Developing good infrastructure is a part of Gen-Next dream.. As a kid, I knew the kind of hardships my parents went through just to make me get to my coaching centre.”
“If every area has 2-3 good nets, it will bring down the travel time and also ensure youngsters get more time to practice more regularly.. I am sure the new facilities will adhere to the high standards we have set and help players realise their potential,” the Team India all-rounder added.
Coaching at the Valasaravakkam facility would start from September 30, while it will take a few weeks’ time for Injambakkam academy to be ready. Coaching at Kolapakkam would start by the end of the year, the release added.
