More schools sign up to cricket in Botswana
The Botswana Cricket Association has embarked on the first leg of the development programme for government school kids in 2008. In February the board added seven new schools and 500 children, boosting the numbers to 27 schools and 1800 kids.
"Our Saturday clinic is progressing well too," Girish Ramakrishna, a spokesman for the BCA, told Cricinfo. "The number of kids participating is around 75 at the Gaborone Cricket Club and we have commenced the Saturday clinic at the Gaborone Youth Centre. Kings Foundation and NGO is assisting us with basic life skills and values to be imparted to the kids at the end of the training session."
