A group of budding cricketers from a Mumbai school were thrilled to share nets with their favourites from the Mumbai Indians team. Ricky Ponting, Jhonty Rhodes, Parthiv Patel, Shane Bond & Krunal Pandya spent their evening with the young talent  giving them  valuable tips and sharing tricks of the game. The youngsters were then treated to a cricket master class, testing their new skills in bowling and batting against their heroes today at the Islam Gymkhana, Marine Drive.

The players also signed autographs and posed for pictures, while they also presented them with mementos.

“I was completely awestruck when I saw the MI players on the field rather than on a television. Watching and playing cricket is my passion and sharing the nets with my idols is a dream come true.” said 12-year-old Vijay.

Ricky Ponting, Head Coach,  Mumbai Indians said, “ The coaching staff and our boys had great time today teaching these enthusiastic kids some basic cricketing tips. We hope they had fun while learning as much as we did. It’s a good initiative by Videocon d2h to organise this engagement and to  motivate the kids to take up the sport,”

“It is immensely satisfying that, through our association with the Mumbai Indians team, Videocon d2h is able to undertake  initiatives that make a positive impact on young people,” said Saurabh Dhoot, Executive Chairman, Videocon d2h. “It was incredible to see the look on the youngsters’ faces when they saw their favourite players as coaches and playing with them today. It is an experience they will always remember and hopefully it will give them the belief that they too can do great things with their lives,” added Saurabh Dhoot.
