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.
