The National Cricket Academy (NCA) plans to expand its reach. At present, the centre is situated in Bangalore, but there are plans to set up five zonal academies in each of the five zones.

At a meeting of the NCA sub-committee in Bangalore on Thursday, it was proposed that the academy will function better if the zonal academies are set up.

“At present, we have the NCA and academies in each state. We feel that there is a gap in the current system. If the zonal academies are set up, they can act as a link between the NCA and the state academies. The state academies will report to the zonal ones, which will report to the NCA,” said a member of the NCA sub-committee who attended the meeting.

The NCA sub-committee will forward this plan to the BCCI Working Committee for ratification.
