BCCI looking towards Northeast to develop game? Visits Nagaland Cricket Stadium

KOHIMA: Cricket is not as popular in the Northeast as maybe football or even basketball but maybe that will soon change. Board of Control for Cricket in India(BCCI) has recently shown its interest in the Northeast and a senior official of the BCCI and a member of the Pitches and Grounds Committee, Ashish Bhowmick recently visited Nagaland.

Bhowmick inspected the Nagaland Cricket Stadium and held a meeting with officials of the Nagaland Cricket Association and interacted with players of the ongoing T20 tournament being organised in Dimapur. To Nagaland's credit, Bhowmick observed that the facilities of the playing area are in excellent condition and said that the pitches were even better than Ranji Trophy venues in other parts of the region. He complimented the Nagaland Cricket Association for maintaining the playing area in a commendable manner.

Bhowmick, who is also the Joint Secretary of the Tripura Cricket Association, assured that Tripura would extend all possible assistance to Nagaland and other Northeastern states in development of the game and improvement of grounds and pitches.
