Kolkata: Aiming to churn out future players for the national team, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) Saturday unveiled Vision 2020 - an initiative which will see Pakistan pace legend Waqar Younis and Sri Lankan spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan nurturing young bowling talents from West Bengal.
A brainchild of former India skipper Sourav Ganguly, the initiative will see camps held across the state to scout young talent who will be trained and guided by the iconic duo roped in for three years and slated to spend at least 30 days a season.
"It's high time Bengal joins the likes of Mumbai and Karnataka who have been churning out players for the national team. Talent alone is not enough, you need guidance and develop cricketing acumen. It's not only about bat and ball, it's more about what you think between the ears and who better than Waqar and Muralitharan to develop that," said Ganguly at the launch.
