The academy is starting with two branches, one in Chennai and one in Salem, but the plan of the franchise is to have many more branches in the future and spot the young talent at the junior level.

CSK has been organising age group tournaments at the school level for quite some time now and has spotted many talents through their “Junior Super Kings” tournament, but now with their academy, they will be looking to groom and develop talented young players and help them get introduced to professional cricket at the senior level.

CSK’s batting coach Michael Hussey is excited about Super Kings academy

Some of the reputed Indian and international players, who are a part of the current CSK squad or have played for CSK in the past, might also deliver guest lectures in the super kings academy. The batting coach of CSK, Michael Hussey, has said that he is already excited about the concept of the academy developing young kids who might go on to play for CSK in the future.

 

Apart from CSK, the other IPL franchises have also been planning about launching their own academies and some of them have already launched them. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have been running their academy for a couple of years now and have allowed injured and out-of-form players of their first squad to train there in the off-season.

I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
