Players between 15–30 years age group can enroll provided they would never have had represented Odisha in any age group category. A maximum of 300 players can enroll in the camp in a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.
The senior selectors, junior selectors and OCA’s newly appointed senior men’s head coach Dinesh Mongia will be monitoring the camp. The preliminary camp will be conducted in three batches, where 30 probable players will be part of the second phase.
Former India spinner Venkatapathy Raju will conduct a specific spinners’ camp in June where the 30 selected spinners will be trained by him in the second phase of the talent hunt programme.
OCA also informed that in future it is planning to conduct such camps by involving international players.
