Three former Ranji trophy players from Saurashtra and Gujarat have successfully cleared the level coaches course exam conducted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and National Cricket Academy.

Level coaches course exam is the highest standard of being a certified coach in the country. Nearly 55 candidates from various cricket associations of the country appeared in the exam, out of which only 10 cleared it.

Hitesh Goswami (Saurashtra Cricket Association), Mukund Parmar and Apurva Desai (both from Gujarat Cricket Association) were among those ten candidates, who cleared the exam.

Goswami had represented Saurashtra in Ranji trophy, while Mukund Parmar was former captain of Gujarat.

Goswami, also an assistant coach of Saurashtra Ranji team, is associated with English country team — Middlesex — since the last three years.

“I have been working hard since last one decade after clearing level one exam in 2001,” Goswami said. (PTI)
