SMR Cricket Academy: Nurturing Lucknow’s Future Cricket Stars

Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India],January 24: Cricket is in the blood of India’s youth, and dreams of playing on the international stage spark in their hearts. But for many aspiring players, the path to success can be paved with challenges, one of the biggest being access to quality training and facilities. Recognising this gap, Mr Sushil Singh, known as SSJ Samar, founded the SMR Cricket Academy (SWIC) in 2017.

“Cricket has always been my passion,” says Samar, reflecting on his journey from practising at home to district-level performance. “Now, my focus is on shaping the future stars of our nation.”

A Player’s Journey, a Coach’s Passion

Samar embodies the spirit of the academy. His cricketing journey, starting with mimicry of his heroes and culminating in playing over 800 matches at various levels, fuels his dedication to mentoring future generations. 

Samar dreamt of an academy offering quality training at an accessible price. This dream materialised in 2017 with the establishment of SMR Cricket Academy in Lucknow. Today, the academy has multiple branches in multiple cities. The academy’s success allows Samar to focus on his true passion: shaping young cricketers into stars. His personal experiences as a player guide his training methods and mentorship style.

Platform for Every Dream

SMR Academy’s commitment to inclusivity shines through in the heartfelt testimonials of its players. 

“I feel great here,” says one trainee, praising Samar’s dedication to supporting every player. “Don’t listen to unnecessary words; visit SMR cricket and experience it yourself. I am lucky I get admission to India’s best cricket academy.”

Another player echoes this sentiment, expressing gratitude for the academy’s support and his chance to earn a sponsorship. He commends Samar for prioritising players’ dreams over his gain.
