Sachin Tendulkar’s New Role in the Cricket Improvement Committee of Mumbai Cricket Association

Sachin Tendulkar’s New Role in the Cricket Improvement Committee of Mumbai Cricket Association

Sachin’s love affair with cricket remains unbroken even after retirement as he is offered yet another role, this time as a ‘special invitee’ in the Cricket Improvement Committee (CIC).

It has barely been a month that Sachin was roped in by the BCCI to be on an advisory committee that also includes his former teammates and equally legendary Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman. This time it is the Mumbai Cricket Association that has decided to avail themselves of his sportsman skills and acumen by making him a special guest on their Cricket Improvement Committee. The Committee is dedicated to appointing coaches and selectors for Mumbai teams in all age groups.

Announcing the decision to invite Sachin, former India skipper and chief selector Dilip Vengsarkar said, “I spoke to Sachin today and he’s agreed to share his views on Mumbai cricket. He will be a special invitee of the CIC and would attend meetings whenever he’s in Mumbai.” Sachin’s involvement might be good for honing the skills of junior cricketers for a future generation as the can implement his concept of ’15-a-side’ games in junior cricket.

Apart from Sachin, the panel comprises of former captain Ajit Wadekar, ex Test batsman and now commentator Sanjay Manjrekar, former India batsman and Mumbai coach Pravin Amre, ex-India pacer Ajit Agarkar, domestic batsman Amol Muzumdar, Deepak Patil and former India women’s team skipper Diana Eduljee. With such dynamic people on board, the work is cut out. Vengsarkar has already clarified that “The CIC will meet next week and soon appoint coaches for all age groups, and a head coach for its world-class indoor cricket academy at BKC. These three months are crucial to plan for the next season.” He also said that discipline across teams would be strictly enforced, “A disciplinary committee would soon be formed and no cricketer, whether he is a superstar or an under-14 player, will be spared for any breach of the code of conduct.” In other words, the Association is gearing up for the Mumbai Premier T20 League.

But for Sachin, if this is not enough, the legendary cricketer is also involved in another venture, where he and his former rival, Australian leg spin legend Shane Warne, are launching a Masters T20 league in the US.
