Default Paperboy Pappu's cricket journey

Paperboy Pappu's cricket journey

AMIT HASAN PAPPU
Shahnoor Rabbani

During the four-day screening camp at the National Cricket Academy Ground over May 12-15, it was evident that the 50 boys selected (from around 9,000) that had shown up from various parts of the country had the passion and dedication required to become a cricketer.

They would each toil all day under the sun performing various drills to test their abilities to be among the best 24 players for the under-17 combined school primary team. Among them a young left-arm spinner showed exceptional grit and gusto to tough it out under the scorching heat and go about the task merrily, encouraging his friends through the process.

A quick chat with him provides a much clearer picture. Amit Hasan Pappu, a 16-year-old from Dinajpur Zilla School, was a paperboy before he discovered his talent in cricket.

"I wasn't always a spinner. I would bowl fast, but my coach advised me to switch to spin and everything turned around for me just like that," Pappu adds.

Issh....how many potential fast bowlers have we lost in this way?

Its sad. Players should be encouraged to become pacers not discouraged. This part of our cricket culture has got change or else we'll continue to see an enless supply of SLA's and a dry supply of pacers.
