Roger Binny gets hands on

Cricket has caught on amongst Bhutanese women with thrice-weekly coaching camps conducted by the Bhutan Cricket Council in Thimphu. National youth coach Damber Singh Gurung along with senior men players take the girls through a coaching skills program. ACC Development Officer Roger Binny started things off during his visit in November.

"The girls are keen on playing cricket and very much interested in the game as they come forward to know new things," says coach Sonam Tobgay. Similar coaching is organized in the Gelephu District by coach Dorji Dakpa. "The main aim is to prepare for the ACC Under-19 Women's Cricket Tournament to be held in 2008," said Damber Singh Gurung.
