Summary

  • There is no dearth of talent in Punjab but the state needs to create better infrastructure and provide more facilities to youngsters to hone their skills, senior cricketer Harbhajan Singh said on Saturday.
  • To encourage them, we have to create better infrastructure and give them more facilities,” the veteran off-spinner, who was chief guest at the launch of a cricket academy of former player Reetinder Sodhi, said.
  • When asked how Reetinder’s academy, which he has opened in St Stephens School in Mohali’s Togan village will benefit the kids, Harbhajan said, “In Punjab, even today (sports) infrastructure is lacking.
  • Harbhajan said it’s a matter of concern that kids are getting hooked to their gadgets these days.
  • But the point is that if good institutes and academies come up and better infrastructure is created, I am sure kids will be encouraged and then we can convert and channelise the talent of these young kids in a positive manner,” Harbhajan said while speaking to PTI.
