Indian Premier League franchise Rajasthan Royals plan to set up a cricket academy in Bangladesh with the aim of increasing their fan base in the cricket-crazy nation.
The Royals’ executive chairman Ranjit Barthakur said this during his brief visit to Bangladesh alongside two other delegates Thursday.
The three-member team inspected the facilities at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka where they were accompanied by Bangladesh Cricket Board officials.
Rajasthan will expand their scouting network by setting up The Royals Cricket Academy in Bangladesh where talented local players will get the chance to showcase themselves.

The ones from the academy who are really cut out for the top level will make their way to the Rajasthan squad, hoped Barthakur.
The Royals could have further enhanced their popularity and fan base here had Bangladesh left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman been available for the forthcoming season, scheduled to begin in April, but the 25-year old will be busy with national commitment at that time.
Mustafizur was bought by Royals for his base price of Indian Rupees one crore in the players auction recently, but since Bangladesh will be on tour of Sri Lanka in April, the paceman reiterated his desire to the media of always putting the country first.
