The search for talent - 03/09/2016

It wasn’t just any cricket ground but a battlefield on the 17th of August when 92 young cricketers turned to fight for the chance to prove themselves and represent the Mysuru Warriors in KPL 2016. The players turned up with a lot of enthusiasm at 8 am in the SDNR stadium, Gandhinagar glades, Academy nets, Mysuru University.

The Players from KSCA register clubs in Mysuru, Mandya, Chamrajinagar and Ramnagar turned up and took chances to showcase their skills with the bat and the ball. “NR Group has always believed in nurturing talent in sports, be it cricket or any other sports. We are proud to host the talent hunt and it is a pleasure to give players a chance to represent Mysuru Warriors. Through this Talent Hunt, we intend to spot good cricketers and provide them a platform to grow and prove themselves.” Said Mr. Arjun Ranga, the owner of the Mysuru Warriors.

“It’s a good opportunity for the local talent also to be playing with some of the bigger players from the Karnataka league, and I hope this experience helps them to grow as better cricketers.” Said RX Murali, the Mysuru Warriors coach.

The first round of the talent hunt saw 92 players out of which 40 were bowlers, 14 batsmen, 30 all-rounders and 8 keeper batsman, who all showed their enormous potential to be really good players. The decision was hard and 24 players were ultimately shortlisted to show how good they are under pressure, with a T-20 game that was played between them. Some fabulous cricket was seen among the players and they proved that pressure would not be a big challenge for them.

“Playing at the nets is one thing, but actually going out there and playing is something different. The ideal way of picking the players will be to look at how they do under pressure.” Said RX Murali. The selected were then put to another test, where they played alongside some of the players already in the Mysuru Warriors team. This seemed to be a challenge for some but two special young players came out as victors of the competition; Nanda Kishore from the Jo Jo Cricket Club and Shreyas N from MUCSC.

While asked about this process Coach RX Murali said “The response to the selection process was heart-warming. The region is a votary of great cricketing talent. It was extremely difficult for us to select players as each and every player was good. We wish both the selected as well as the others all the very best.” He also added “We have put together a good team, a good mix between experience and youth. So come out and support us.”
