"The children were asked to send their dreams with two wrappers of Parle biscuit packets. The contest received overwhelming success with nearly three lakh children responding. Of which nearly one lakh mentioned that they wanted to become cricketers and represent India," sources from Procam International - the event managers - told Thatscricket.com. "Lots were drawn out of the one lakh and the 20 lucky children were picked. The children aged between 9 and 16 from all over Indian will inter-act with Ponting, Srinath, Arun Lal and Brijesh Patel. Ponting will also inaugurate the one week coaching camp at the Karnataka State Cricket Association Academy for the 20 boys selected on an all-India basis from the Parle inter-city cricket tournament," the sources said.
