Rajasthan Royals to open academy in Bangladesh

Rajasthan Royals

The champions of the inaugural edition of the IPL in 2008, are looking forward to chasing a deal with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). This will allow Rajasthan Royals to have their own scouts present in domestic tournaments and pick the raw talent available in Bangladesh.

Rajasthan Royal Chairman stated in Cricbuzz

“We want to open a Royal academy in Bangladesh. The plan is yet to be finalized, but we are thinking about [an academy] which can feed the whole IPL from here. We would like to send our scouts to discover cricketers from the grassroots, to prepare them by honing their skills, so that both of the bodies (RR and BCB) can utilize their talents and skills. I am here to see how we can have an exchange program for cricket so that we can flourish jointly, as the eastern Himalayan territory, rather than territories of India and Bangladesh.”

Chairman added

“Teams like Kolkata, Chennai, and Mumbai had looked at Bangladeshi players as potential recruits over the years, and we are definitely looking at them right now. They’ve got grit; they play under very difficult situations, so I think it’s very important.”

Promoting Cricket to Regions

The Team Rajasthan Royals fanbase is in Kolkata and Chennai and the biggest fanbase is in Bangladesh and Northeast India. The Jaipur-based franchise are looking to promote the sport in these regions.
