Jay Shah lays foundation stone for BCCI’s training facilities in northeast

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary, Jay Shah, on Monday laid the foundation stone for the board’s upcoming state-of-the-art training facilities in the northeastern region of India.

The indoor cricket academies will serve players from Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Sikkim and will be based in Shillong, Itanagar, Kohima, Aizawl, Imphal and Gangtok.

These new facilities, which have been specifically designed to groom budding cricketers from the region, will feature world-class indoor nets, indoor swimming pools, and fitness centers, providing year-round training options for the athletes from these six states.

Shah announced the development on X (formerly Twitter).

These six states were integrated into India’s domestic cricket scene ahead of the 2018-19 season. Before the 2022-23 cricket season, India’s inter-zonal cricket scene consisted of five zones: Central, East, North, South, and West. However, in 2022, the North East Zone (NEZ) was established and made its debut in the 2022-23 Duleep Trophy, a first-class cricket competition.

In 2023, the North East Zone participated in the Deodhar Trophy, a List-A competition, marking their first-ever appearance in this tournament.

The inclusion of these states highlights the BCCI’s commitment to providing the best training facilities across the country, ensuring that no region is left out.
