Abhiram's Mumbai Adventure
Abhiram Joshi approached the club in December 2016 with a request to spend time in Mumbai.
He went on to spend his winter break at the prestigious Global Cricket School in Mumbai, used extensively by professional counties, and international teams such as England. Our thanks go to Brian O’Rourke at Cricket Ireland, one of the first coaches in the world to take a team to GCS, for smoothing the path for Abhiram to be selected by Sachin Bajaj, the Director of GCS.
Abhiram has kindly produced this detailed blog into his time at GCA. As these are Abhiram’s unedited words and photographs, NUSC must state that the opinions expressed here are the views of the writer and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of NUSC or, any of its associated partners.
At Shivaji Park, a famous ground where the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar first learned the game. You can see two men on the left, hands on their heads, the same reaction but part of two different games.
