Girgaon, Mumbai -
Sri Lankan cricket legend, Chaminda Vaas, will be training youngsters in Mumbai. He believes that fast bowling is a form of art. The training camp is organised by Jwala foundation’s training academy, where Vaas will be a bowling mentor. He will assess youngsters of the age groups U-14,15,16 and 18.
This camp will start on May 17,2017 and conclude on May 21,2017 at Police Gymkhana in Charni Road. Jwala foundation’s president, Mr Jwala Singh, was present at the press conference which was held on Wednesday. Chaminda Vaas started coaching in 2013 and believes that fast bowling requires a lot of hard work and perseverance. He also believes that the form of running is quite important in fast bowling. A good run-up and fast pace is possessed by a talented bowler but hard work is what makes that talent bloom, according to Chaminda.
“Happy to be back again. I was part of the Mitsui Shoji T20 league last year and this year also I am here to support and train the top players of this league under the Centre Of Excellence For Cricket”, said Vaas.
He further added,“I was very much impressed with the talent I came across during the league last year. That’s why, when Mr Jwala Singh approached me to spare time to coach the youngsters, I readily agreed. All these boys that I have seen need a bit of corrections before they play at higher level”.
He will train the youngsters for five days at Police gymkhana, where Wasim Jaffer had previously come to bat.
