New Delhi: Apr 22, 2014

Yuvraj Singh Centre of Excellence (YSCE) has tied up with Bishen Bedi Cricket Coaching Trust to provide world class training facilities to budding cricketers. Under this alliance, cricket camps will be conducted across the country to select a team that will further be taken to different countries to groom the young cricketers to the international cricket scenario.

Sharing his excitement on the alliance, Yuvraj Singh said, “It is a moment of great pride and honour to me as my own guru has joined hands with my academy. Bishan Paaji has not only taught me the game but has installed human values to be grounded in life as well.

“I would like to see more and more young players learn from him and become better sportsmen. I am yet to meet a more passionate and dedicated coach who works at grassroots level and promotes the young talent.”

The first camp will be organised on the outskirts of Nangal in Punjab. Bedi will supervise and organise a tough and competitive training camp for the kids. YSCE will bring in its coaching facility and help Bedi in grooming young cricketers.

The association has also made special provisions for the players from financially unstable family backgrounds to give an opportunity to all the budding cricketers.
