For former India off-spinner Nooshin Al Khadeer, it will be a “different kind of challenge” when she mentors the under-19 women within the High Performance camp on the National Cricket Academy (Bengaluru) from July 31 to August 31.

“It should be a great experience to be with about 30 young cricketers picked from across the country. India has been known for its quality spinners and the emphasis will be on grooming the best,” Nooshin mentioned in a chat with The Hindu.

“With the World Cup around, these young cricketers will be definitely watched. With some of them expected to don the seniors’ colours in the next two to three years, every effort will be made to make them ready for the bigger task ahead,” mentioned Nooshin, who has 100 wickets in ODIs.

Nooshin Al Khadeer has 100 plus wickets in girls’s ODIs.

“I deem it a responsibility more than anything else. And, I am keen to make a mark, being into coaching for almost 12 years now,” she mentioned.

Nooshin was the coach when Railways received two titles and Supernovas received the Women’s T20 Challenge. The Supernovas had the likes of Harmanpreet Kaur and Harleen in its ranks.

“Definitely, women’s cricket is looking up, and the right things are happening at the right time,” mentioned Nooshin, who works as a Chief Office Superintendent in South Central Railway (Secunderabad).

“Being a former India player doesn’t mean one can be complacent or overconfident. I, too, have a task cut out and I am ready to justify the faith put in me,” she mentioned.

On the general customary of girls’s cricket, Nooshin felt that the sport sense of the younger expertise, particularly within the under-19 and under-16 teams, was simply superb. “Understanding the game better and that power-hitting by some of them is simply stunning,” she added.

“Being impactful in my job is my first priority. Honestly, I don’t take up any assignment with a specific goal other than giving 100 per cent and contributing in my own way to the success of whichever team I am coaching,” Nooshin concluded.
