Sachin Tendulkar has joined forces with Middlesex Cricket to launch an academy. The leading run scorer in Test and One Day International wants to create a platform to learn and practice for the budding males and females between the ages of 9-14, where cricket shall be the primary sport.
“Along the way, there were many guys who approached me but I was not convinced with what they wanted to do,” Sachin said in an interview.
The first cricket camp is scheduled to be hosted from 6-9th August at Merchant Taylor’s School in Northwood while Mumbai shall be hosting one in November.
Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy’s proposal was discussed over a period of 10 months between Sachin and Middlesex. Finally, they came to an agreement when both ends were convinced.
