Indian school team visiting City Cricket Academy

A team of young cricketers from a school in India are visiting City Cricket Academy this week.

The St Xavier’s Collegiate School cricket team will be taking part in the Goodwill Cricket Tournament hosted by CCA against schools from Leicestershire and as well as playing in friendly matches. 

Former cricketer and team mentor Raju Mukherji said: “I think this is the first time a school team from Calcutta is going abroad to take part in a tournament. Look, not all of these boys will grow up to be cricketers in future, but this exposure will help them no matter what they do in life. They’ll be leaders in their own fields for sure.”
