Team manager of the Nigerian Cricket Foundation Joshua Eshua told Xinhua the choice of the Indian coach, Shrinam Reganathan, who was employed on voluntary basis, will take the country far in the competition organized by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Reganathan, a level A, certified coach under the Board of Control of Cricket in India, was included in Nigeria’s team technical crew following previous unimpressive performance, the Nigerian cricket official said. “We are happy to have such a coach that has attained the highest level of coaching training in India.
