Indian cricketers Irfan and Yusuf Pathan’s owned and run cricket academy, known as the Cricket Academy of Pathans, has opened its 15th cricket academy in Ranchi, Jharkhand on Sunday. These academies had been launched by the Pathan brothers over two years ago. Yusuf Pathan serves as the Director of the Cricket Academy of Pathans. CAP currently has its academies in 15 other cities including Delhi, Ludhiana, Mainpuri, Kota, Patna, Morbi, Noida, Bengaluru, Rajkot, Surat, Sonipat, Port Blair and Raipur. The curriculum for the cricket coaching program has been designed by former Indian cricket team coach, Greg Chappell and popular coach from Australia, Cameron Tradell. When asked in a press meet about the objective behind the academy in Ranchi, Yusuf Pathan said, “at present, there is no structured cricket academy in the State that is professionally run with a well-developed coaching programme structured by the experts of the field. We will be the first to offer it and hope to polish the talent of the aspiring players of this State. The academy focuses on nutrition, psychology and the overall physical development of the students.” Pathan also stated that they had plans of opening more academies in the eastern region which would assist the budding cricketers to get proper training.
