Thomson to groom State pacers

Former Aussie pace ace Jeff Thomson has been roped in to coach quick bowlers in a new scheme launched by the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) in partnership with IDBI Federal Life Insurance.

The KSCA-IDBI Federal Life Insurance Bowling Foundation will look to groom meritorious talent and develop them into first-rate bowlers to boost the domestic and international cricket, a release stated.

Earlier this year the company had announced a similar partnership with the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA).

“It is a wonderful moment for us,” Brijesh Patel, KSCA secretary, said. “With our constant endeavour  to provide better training, we have many youngsters in various age groups who are being nurtured. To be groomed by one of famed fast bowlers from yesteryears will be a dream come true for many youngsters.

“We believe this will be a long-term relationship in which youngsters from the State will benefit and become better bowlers for the state and country,” he added.
