“We have MRC ‘A’ team in the TNCA league. We also run Swaraj CC and also have tie-ups with many teams in the lower division league of the TNCA. I enjoy working with budding cricketers. There is no dearth of talent in the state and we are confident of forming a good and fighting unit. The TNPL is a fantastic platform for young players to display their skills,’’ said Venkataramana to Express.
