Goswami to train UAE kids
Cricketers in the UAE will be able to pick the brains of fast bowler Jhulan Goswami, a member of India’s women’s team, when she travels to Dubai later this month for a three day masterclass clinic.
Goswami will join India’s head coach Tushar Arothe and pass on their experience and knowledge to budding cricketers at G Force Cricket Academy between October 27-29.
The 34-year-old has plenty of experience having been a dominant force for her country for more than 15 years. She has played in more than 200 internationals in all formats and was part of the India team to have reached the World Cup final in England earlier this year.
To date, she is the leading wickettaker in ODIs with 195 scalps, and has taken 40 wickets in her 10 Tests so far.
For Arothe, 51, he has been integral to India’s rise in the world game, with the team now sitting fourth in the ICC Women’s Team rankings.
Gopal Jasapara, head coach of G Force Academy, is delighted the pair will visit the country.
“It’s a very proud moment for us” he said, “Goswami is someone who has played a lot of cricket for more than 15 years and has consistently taken wickets at the highest level. It’s a great opportunity for the boys and girls to learn from her and Arothe when they’re in Dubai.”
The clinic will involve both practical and theory.
