Anglo Indian Group – exclusive license holder of the MCC and Lord’s brands in India - is pleased to announce the launch of the MCC Lord’s Club, India with a pre-season cricket training course at The Doon School, Dehradun, Uttarakhand. 

The pre-season training course  will be attended by approximately 80 boys from The Doon School, as well as local children who have been invited by the school as part of their continuing community outreach programme that supports several schools in the region as part of The Doon School’s social service and social responsibility curriculum.    

The five day intensive course, to be attended by 12-17 year olds, will cover all aspects of the game with the MCC’s ‘Spirit of Cricket’ motto “play hard, play fair” at the core.  The coaches, who have been flown from England, are all playing members of the MCC. They bring a wealth of experience as active MCC playing members or as members of the MCC Young Cricketers.  

Simon Reid, Founder & Chairman of Anglo Indian Group, said ‘It is a great privilege to be launching the MCC Lord’s Club, India at The Doon School and we hope that this is the start of a long-term partnership with The Doon School to bring the cricket skills, ethos and values of MCC and Lord’s to its pupils and to those boys from the wider community’.  
 
 
  
 
The Doon School’s Headmaster, Dr Peter McLaughlin said ‘I am delighted to be welcoming the MCC Lord’s Club, India to spearhead the school’s pre-season training. In every sphere of school life, we always seek to provide our boys with the best possible teaching. The MCC’s level of expertise and professional approach to the teaching of cricket has been the key reason that Doon has forged this relationship. I am confident that the MCC Lord’s Club, India will provide our boys and those underprivileged boys from the schools that we support, the best opportunity to be taught by such enthusiastic and well qualified coaches who love and play the game. All of the boys are extremely fortunate to have this opportunity to develop and improve their own personal cricket skills and performance’.   

Anglo Indian’s technology partners, Pitch Vision, will be providing technical coaching analysis and support during the course, and already have their technology installed at the MCC Academy at Lord’s. A senior member from Pitch Vision is flying in from South Africa and by good fortune Pitch Vision is manufactured in Dehradun. As we say in India, destiny indeed!
