A new initiative, Indian Gramin Cricket League (IGCL), is being launched to bring forth hidden talent in rural and remote areas and the organisers are hopeful that one day BCCI would recognise it.
“Our main objective to provide a suitable platform to hidden cricketing talent in villages and remote areas. For this we organise tournaments under IGCL in villages itself,” organiser Anurag Bhadauria.
The tournament structure is such that matches are organised in different Blocks of a district.
“From these teams 11 top performing players are selected and a district IGCL team is formed. So far teams of 32 districts have been formed, whose league will be inaugurated by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mr. Akhilesh Yadav at KD Singh Babu stadium,” he said.
