RAIPUR: Former India players Yusuf and Irfan Pathan opened the second branch of their 'Cricket Academy of Pathans' (CAP) in Raipur today. The Pathan brothers have a plan of launching academies in six different cities with an eye on increasing it to 20 by the end of 2017.

"It's time to give something back to the game which has given us a lot. There is no dearth of talent in India and all you need is to give them proper training," CAP director Yusuf Pathan, who inaugurated the new academy, said at the launch.

The CAP has two modules -- Coaching the coaches and coaching the kids. Yusuf currently plays IPL for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) while Irfan went unsold at the recently held IPL auctions.
