Association secretary Hanif Patel today told UNI that the Association will begin a talent hunt in the coming days in the small towns like Uchchal, Olpad and Vyara to find out good bowlers who would be given special training.

''We have appointed a new coach Bhavik Patel who has played 25 Ranji matches and he will select and train the bowlers in the SDCA Academy,'' said Hanif Patel.

SDCA will go goes into the interior parts of the district to find out good bowlers because SDCA thinks bowlers from the interior areas have lot of power and good pace, he added.
