Tatenda Taibu to launch cricket academy in England
Zimbabwe’s first black Test cricket Tatenda Taibu is set to open a cricket academy in the UK. The academy will be based in the North-West of England. The project is meant to develop young cricketers from Zimbabwe in the United Kingdom. The program will focus on coaching, mentoring as well as matches against other academies or county side.
Now that Zimbabwe is making its way back in world cricket, we must strive to improve our performances at all levels and the next generation of talent is a crucial part of this,
Some of these players will be experiencing overseas conditions for the first time and it will be a valuable education for them, from a cricketing and personal perspective. If these guys can thrive in English conditions it will be a huge boost to their confidence and career and, who knows, maybe turn them into a star of the future.
