During the training the participants under the guidance of the faculty constructed a completely new pitch in the practice arena, the special conditions and criteria set the faculty was preparation of pitch in a given situation of a match within 6 days.
The opportunity of hosting such BCCI programs is a matter of great pride for Sikkim and shows the level of trust and faith BCCI and Secretary Jay Shah has bestowed upon SICA.
We are hopeful that given the extremely positive response and impression of the BCCI observer and faculty regarding the SICA cricket ground/Infrastructure and trained manpower, Sikkim could host an official BCCI matches in the state.
