With an aim to explore the hidden talent of young girls and boost their morale to pursue cricket, a Government High Secondary School Physical Education teacher Pooja Sharma is giving free of cost cricket coaching in Kashmir’s Udhampur district.
Pooja, who was inspired to take up cricket as a career and try for nationals, could not pursue her passion. Now she is helping almost two dozen children in Jammu and Kashmir to realise their love for the sport.
When asked about how she is accumulating funds for coaching, Sharma said that her school supports her and gives her access to the premises for training after school hours.
Meanwhile, the young girls are happy and enthusiastic over getting free of cost cricket coaching in their area.
Pooja Sharma believes that till date girls do not have enough facilities for training in Udhampur. Her grit and determination has made it possible for young girls to see themselves as budding cricketers.
