As in a recent interview Subhomoy Das said,
"It was Dhoni’s wish that I initiate a residential cricket school in Bengal. Dhoni used to tell me that the project should be made in a way where the students can both study and learn cricket. So, we have designed the project in a manner where we will have a school along with modern and scientific infrastructure,”
The academy was originally planned to be established in Ranchi, but the management couldn't procure the required 200 acres of land.
"It will be the first time Dhoni will actively work as batting coach and mentor in a academy. At the same time, he will also assist our wicket-keeping coach in the subject. So, before starting his job Mahi has also taken required suggestions from Rahul (Dravid) and Sachin (Tendulkar) also," Das added.
