    Rs. 10 lakh cash award presented to the team

    Andhra Cricket Association on Friday felicitated the victorious Andhra under-19 women’s team with Rs. 10 lakh cash award for emerging as national champion in the limited overs segment defeating Mumbai in the final at Guntur on Thursday.

    Several administrators, coaches and players, including National Senior Selection Committee chairman MSK Prasad took part in the function and congratulated the team.

    This is the second time Andhra under- 19 women’s team had won a national title. Earlier it won its maiden title at Cuttack in 2015.

    Speaking on the occasion ACA secretary Ch. Arun Kumar said that owing to progressive steps taken by the association under the stewardship of Narasapuram Member of Parliament Gokaraju Ganga Raju, the results have started to trickle in.

    “ACA has spent BCCI funds in a productive manner by sprucing up infrastructure in all 13 districts and the setting up of women’s academy at JKC College (Guntur) paved way for the development of the women cricket in a big way,’ he said. “The results are not instant. There is a sustained effort for more than six years which is helping Andhra teams win big tournaments,” said National Senior Selection Committee chairman M.S.K. Prasad

    Women’s team coach Srinivas Reddy said that this team defeated the top teams in the country. Players like Durga, Sindhuja, E. Padmaja, Pushpa Latha and others played well. “The players should learn how to take singles. With no singles coming they are getting under pressure and going for big unproductive strokes,” he observed. ACA administrators recollected the services of late J. Narendranath, who strove hard for the development of the women’s cricket in Andhra.
