The powerpuff girls of Nashik’s cricket

The mornings and evenings at the Golf ground in the city seem different of late. Usually crowded with boys in white, seen polishing their cover drives, square cuts and yorkers, the ground now has girls walking tall with their cricket gears. The significant changes in the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) policy to boost women’s cricket in the country has underlined the fact that soon the ladies will rule this gentleman’s game. The changes which started as a policy decision have soon percolated to the local level and turned into a more practical avatar. So, it’s no wonder that the Nashik District Cricket Association (NDCA) has whole heartedly opened its doors for city girls.
“Our girls are really hardworking. The NDCA is also committed to provide as many facilities as possible to them. We are providing free coaching as well. Efforts are being taken to attract more and more girls to join the sport. Nashik has a legacy of star players. We have had great athletes, representing India at the Olympics and it’s time for our girls to be a part of the Indian cricket team,” says Vinod Shah, the chairman of NDCA.
