BCCI Expands Cricket Infrastructure to Northeast India! 🏏

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the world's richest cricket board, is now focusing on Northeast India. With an investment of hundreds of crores, BCCI is setting up indoor cricket academies to extend cricket to even the remotest states of India. Known for earning hundreds of crores annually through IPL, BCCI is channeling a significant portion of this revenue to create cricket infrastructure across various regions.

BCCI has successfully built world-class stadiums and facilities in various states, making international cricket accessible across India. It has also contributed to building at least one international cricket stadium in each state. Now, the focus is on expanding cricket to Northeast India, known for its hills, mountains, and forests.

From the 2018-19 season, BCCI has included teams from six Northeast states—Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Sikkim—in domestic cricket tournaments.

BCCI Secretary Jay Shah recently inaugurated indoor cricket stadiums in these six states. He expressed his honor and privilege in leading this initiative, which includes modern indoor nets, swimming pools, fitness facilities, and year-round training programs. These facilities will significantly enhance cricket standards in the Northeast. Additionally, a new cricket pavilion will be built in Mizoram. Until now, Assam was the only state in Northeast India with a world-class international cricket stadium.
