Indian former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and Middlesex County Cricket Club announced they "are joining forces to launch an academy to teach young girls and boys about the sport," according to the AFP. Children aged between nine and 14 "will be put through a comprehensive cricket curriculum" at the Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy. There will be "several cricket camps beginning at English school Merchant Taylor's from August 6-9 but then venturing to Mumbai, London and further afield." Tendulkar, regarded as "one of the greatest batsmen of all time," having accrued the most runs in int'l cricket, said that "the ambition for the academy was two-fold." Tendulkar: "The objective is not only to produce good cricketers but also good global citizens of the future" (AFP, 7/18).
