Newly-nominated President of Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) Kuldip Singh today said that his top priority would be to promote cricket particularly in the rural areas of the state.
Talking about the untapped potential of youth in the state, Singh said, "We have plethora of talent and it has been proven with the selection of cricketers across different age groups at the national and international level."
Singh, the former vice president of JSCA, who was elevated to the top position, assured of working towards the betterment of the players in the state.
"Spotting and nurturing cricket talent from the rural pockets tops my priority list," he said adding focus would also be on improving infrastructure of the state.
