Former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will launch his academy in Singapore on January 20 at St Patrick's School.
The MS Dhoni Cricket Academy, which will follow a curriculum set by Dhoni, is the second outside India. The first opened in Dubai in November.
Dhoni will work with Singapore women's team captain GK Diviya, who competed at last year's Kuala Lumpur SEA Games, as well as Singapore men's players Chetan Suryavanshi and Chaminda Ruwan, reported the Straits Times.
"Sports should be an essential driver for the development of a child's character. Apart from being fit, you can learn leadership and other important aspects of life via sports," said Dhoni, 36, in a statement released on January 5. "Every kid should play an outdoor sport. MS Dhoni Cricket Academy is not only about producing cricket talent, but our academy's vision is to guide a kid to become a champion in life via sports."
More than 200 children have enrolled in the academy since registration started last month. The academy is open to children from the age of six.
