The idea behind this talent hunt program Is primarily to spot talented cricketers at an early age. It has been observed over the years that our system does not have an appropriate coaching structure at the grass root level and because of this very reason our young cricketers develop faulty techniques at their raw/early age.
They then carry it forward in their developing years until such time they come under a proper coaching structure at the U-19 level or join any cricket academy.
For the implementation of this talent hunt program, KSL will hire former test cricketers and coaches to ensure the essence of the PDP. All Talent Hunt Officers will be given the task to select extremely talented players from all over the region after a 7 to the 10-day program at each designated city based on the following benchmarks, which were specified to all Talent Hunt Officers/Coaches for the selection of young cricketers.
