Australia’s World Cup winning captain Michael Clarke will be imparting cricket lessons to young kids from India during a training camp scheduled to be held at Sydney in July.

India’s sports and entertainment company, Dunamis Sportainment, has joined hands with Kolkata’s Aditya School of Sports for this unique training camp with Michael Clarke Cricket Academy.

The camp baptised as Master Class with Michael Clarke will be held under the watchful eyes of the former Australian batsman and will see multiple batches of 30 kids travel Down Under for a 12-day long programme, in a bid to become world class cricketers.

“It is indeed a matter of great pleasure for me that I have been presented with this opportunity of imparting training to the young and talented cricketers from India,” Clarke said.

“There is no doubt that India is a nursery of talents and I am sure with the right kind of training, they will do justice to their potential,” he said.

“I am quite optimistic that after they are through with their camp, they will go back as much better cricketers and develop into top class professionals. It will be a huge step towards representing Team India,” he added.

Dunamis has played a stellar role in making this association come to fruition and believes that it will pave a better path for these upcoming stars. “It is a great opportunity for upcoming cricketers from India to learn the nuances of the game from the legend himself. We trust the association will transform the aspiring boys and girls into a better and complete athlete,” CEO of Dunamis Sportainment, Mr. Abhishek Misra said.

Clarke, who has appeared in more than 100 Tests and 245 ODIs, is one of the most successful Australian Captains and is managed by Dunamis, which takes care of all his public appearances and brand endorsements in India.
