I had the pleasure of meeting Coach Raghu a couple of weeks ago. Even before meeting him, I was really impressed that someone had started a cricket coaching academy in the Bay area for young aspiring cricketers. Coach Raghu possesses excellent coaching credentials and his record in terms of developing the next generation of players for India speaks for itself. Upon meeting him, I was most impressed by his passion and dedication to the game of cricket.

He is extremely knowledgeable about the game and he wants to continue learning, as witnessed by his action of contacting me about cricket ball aerodynamics. I found that he had not only read and carefully studied all my published works, but came well prepared with pointed questions. I really enjoyed out interaction on the art and science of cricket. I wish Coach Raghu all the best in his endeavor and look forward to interacting with him in the future.
