KSCA Empowers Development Team, Coaches


The Botswana Cricket Association (BCA) in collaboration with India’s based Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) are currently hosting a skills transfer and development program, with a view to enhance the coaching capabilities and capacity of the BCA development team.

The program commenced on the 15th March and is expected to end on the 30th March. KSCA’s highly experienced technical team consisting of three experts is currently working very closely with BCA coaches in an intense programme encompassing theoretical and practical components of the game, which will continue even after their return, through digital platforms.

In an interview, BCA Vice Chairman Sumod Damodar said that the main objective of the program is to enable the transfer of knowledge, information and skills to the BCA coaches and development teams. Damodar said that they have identified some local coaches to acquire the technical skills from the KSCA team at the same time working with players.

He noted that it was the first time for BCA embarked on such a program where they have technical staff, highly qualified and experienced coaches, adding the initiative will have a tremendous effect, even when the KSCA team goes back to India. He noted that the KSCA has one of the best cricket set ups in India that is highly rated around the world coaching structures.

“The schedule for the activities include practice games and training sessions for the U-19 girls which was completed last weekend, whereas the training for the U-19 Boys/Men will be completed this week,’’ he said.

Damodar said during the program, the U-19 boys and girls team will play couple of games before training sessions so that KSCA have a brief idea of what the calibre and capability of the players are.

He urged the players and coaches to take the opportunity with extreme levels of seriousness, to make every effort to observe, learn and implement all the knowledge that would be made available to them during the period.

Meanwhile, Damodar has stated that the BCA’s association with KSCA started last year in August and February through the High Commission of India, Botswana. He said that as part of their collaboration BCA Women’s team (The Herons) took a visit to Bengaluru in November 2023 for a two weeks’ program, where they had an intensive training at the invitation of KSCA.
