“I coached Aravind in the MRF Pace Foundation 25 years back. He was talented and had an inquisitive mind, which made him come and ask a lot of questions to learn the Art of Fast bowling. Over the years he has remained a keen learner and has imparted the knowledge to all the budding fast bowlers, who have benefitted from him. As a person who is very committed and focused, I am sure he will produce quality fast bowlers in the years to come and wish him all the very best for his journey at Pace and Swing Academy.”
My first interactions with Aravind dates back to 1992, the time when we both were trainees at the MRF pace foundation. He was a natural swing bowler & was always seeking ways to improve his skill. I’ve had innumerable conversations with him during the sessions and found him to be an intelligent bowler who always kept plotting ways to out-do the batsmen. He should have played higher levels of cricket but was unfortunate to miss out. Having learnt the art of pace and swing from the Legend Dennis Lillee, he has all the capabilities to shine as a coach & mentor for budding youngsters. I wish him the very best for Pace and Swing Academy.
