MS Dhoni launched a cricket academy in Singapore at St Patrick's School. During November last year, Dhoni had launched his first global cricket academy at Al Quoz in Dubai. Terming the inauguration of the venture as the fulfillment of his 'dream', he had collaborated with Pacific Sports Club and Aarka Sports Club.
The MS Dhoni cricket academy launched in Singapore will work with Singapore women's team captain G.K. Diviya, who competed at last year's Kuala Lumpur SEA Games, as well as Singapore men's players Chetan Suryavanshi and Chaminda Ruwan.
He will work with Academia7, the franchise holder for the academy in 13 countries, and sports management company Aarka Sports to establish up to 12 other academies in Asia.
More than 200 children have signed up with the academy since registration started last month. The academy is open to children aged six and above, with corporate packages also available.
Dhoni was spotted at the launch of the academy. Interacting with the kids at the event he said that it is important to focus on the preparation more than the result. "Never focus on the result. Result is not important. It's your preparation & the execution that matters, because of which you get the result," said Dhoni.
