Welcome to LB Shastri Cricket Club.
LB Shastri academy is a busy place where young players are sweating out in the nets, improving their game ball by ball, day by day.
On the other side of the field, there is another bunch of boys who are practising fielding drills and there is a man Sanjay Bhardwaj, the coach of the academy, who is keeping a keen eye on both the sides. In between, he is passing instructions to the players as well.
LB Shastri academy, is one of the prestigious academies in Delhi, which has produced star Indian players like Gautam Gambhir, Amit Mishra, Unmukt Chand is now in limelight as we might see three more players become next big thing in Indian cricket as Nitish Rana is shining with his performances in IPL 2017 whereas Navdeep Saini and Kulwant Khejroliya have already made it to India A.
Here, the coach has the main emphasis on improving the game of a player rather than just having an eye for making it to state-side, which has been the success mantra of all the players who have played here.
Sportzwiki caught up with Mr Sanjay Bhardwaj and had a talk with him regarding performances of all these players, especially Gautam Gambhir, whom everyone expected to make it to the Indian team for the Champions Trophy.
