“The cricket administrative course prepares administrators of the game to be innovative.

“Cricket is now a full corporate entity, where you are expected to post both profit and loss at the end of the year.

“So, this course creates the platform and enablement to produce cricketers who can run programmes in a format that is admissible internationally.

“The course also enables administrators to organise cricket events on their own. This has to do with small cricket office, and associations being run by coaches and games masters.

“These are the people we have invited to come and be part of this programme which enables participants to focus on achieving result,” Onyeama said.

He said the course would be conducted by an ICC Instructor, Mr Emeka Igwilo, and supported by Mr Joseph Eshua, the General Manager of NCF.
