ACA Prez Taranga Gogoi: Will take Cricket Beyond Guwahati to Smaller Towns

Guwahati: The newly elected president of the Assam Cricket Association (ACA), Taranga Gogoi stated on Sunday that the new committee will make sure to expand the game’s reach outside of Guwahati to other towns in the state.

Gogoi was quoted by PTI saying, “We will ensure that cricket doesn’t remain confined to Guwahati alone. We will try to ensure that more matches, including first class games, are held in venues outside this main city.”

He further said about infrastructure, “The committee before us has initiated a lot of infrastructure development work across the state. We will be looking to complete those as well as undertake new ones.”

 “Without proper infrastructure, the players cannot give their best. Alongside, we will also ensure that adequate coaching and other facilities are available for our cricketers,” the ACA president added.

Gogoi added that the state association will request additional international matches, including World Cup matches when India hosts in 2023, from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

It should be noted that the Assam Cricket Association’s new committee was chosen on Sunday without any opposition.
