Bangalore, Aug 10: If the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) agrees, then a new partnership between the Indian cricket board and MRF Pace Foundation could begin soon. And Indian fast bowlers could be training under Glenn McGrath.
According to a report in "Mumbai Mirror", the Chennai-based Pace Foundation delegation made a power point presentation to the officials at National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore on Thursday (August 8).
Senthilnathan, who is in-charge of the Pace Foundation, was part of the two-member team at NCA.
"We're happy with the way the presentation went about but whether to have a tie-up is the BCCI's decision. I understand they had a lot of decisions to make at the meeting yesterday and they gave us a little time to make our case. We'll wait for them to come back to us," Senthilnathan told the newspaper.
"It is not only about bowling academy and training for the pace bowlers. The foundation has a rehabilitation centre and also facilities to coach the coaches. So, it should be a good deal," an unnamed NCA official said.
Currently, former Australian paceman McGrath is the head coach in Chennai. He recently took charge from Dennis Lillee.
