In 2013, the year he say goodbye to cricket, Sachin Tendulkar recommended a progressive 15-player-a-side idea. Tendulkar had recommended that between schools and between school diversions ought to be a 15-player undertaking. Albeit just 11 players will take the field, the players on the seat too will get an opportunity to bat or bowl in the playing XI, contingent on the chief's call. After three years, the arrangement is set to be executed in Mumbai's between school cricket (Harris and Giles Shield) this season.
The arrangement has been given a gesture from the Mumbai Schools Sports Association (MSSA). Haryana Cricket Association were the first to execute it while the MCA presented it not long ago in a U-12 determination trial matches. "It is a positive move for Mumbai cricket. This ought to have happened before however," Tendulkar told on Saturday.
With around 300 schools anticipated that would take part in the competition, the unbelievable Indian batsman evaluated roughly 1800 more school cricketers to profit by it. "Six more players will now get an open door in each amusement. That will be fantastic. It is about support.
On the off chance that the young men are feeling the loss of their school and leaving scholastics to play cricket then they ought to be either knocking down some pins or batting. Else they would squander their time. Presently, all the 15 players in the group will have some execution to impart to their neighbors. The entire thought is to energize them by making more open doors," said Tendulkar.
Tendulkar is sure that the 15-player idea will lift the norms of the amusement. "A batsman will get an assortment of bowlers to confront (as the chief can ring anybody from the squad). Likewise for a bowler, every one of his wickets would be of an appropriate batsman," said Tendulkar.
MSSA cricket secretary Nadim Memon will require a meeting of school mentors a week prior to the competitions start in November to clarify the guidelines. "Whatever Sachin thinks for cricket will dependably be for the advancement of it. We ought to wholeheartedly bolster it," said Memon.
