The Nigerian Cricket Foundation has disclosed that the employment of an Indian coach will reflect positive performance at the World Cricket League Division 5 to be hosted by the United Kingdom later in May, 2016.
Vanguard reports that Joshua Eshua the team manager of the Nigerian Cricket Foundation stated that the choice of the Indian coach, Shrinam Reganathan, who was employed on voluntary basis, will take the country far in the competition organized by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
“We are happy to have such a coach that has attained the highest level of coaching training in India. India is one of the best cricket nations in the world and we strongly believe his wealth of experience will impact positively on our team at the ICC league,” he said.
Reganathan is a level-A certified coach under the Board of Control of Cricket in India. He has been included in Nigeria’s team technical crew after a string of unimpressive performances. More than 14 Nigerian cricket players have been invited to camp ahead of the training tour and competition. The Nigerian cricket team is expected to embark on a training tour to Essex in London from May 11, to acclimatize before departing for the league.
