Indian Cricket Beyond the Boundary

Cricket. This one word has the power to bring the entire nation of 1.3 billion people to a standstill. The best example of this is the 2011 ICC World Cup. Everyone was glued to their television screens, as it was a match that brought India to the edge of their seats. The winning six of the then-captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, will live with us forever.

Even today, anyone who hears Mr. Ravi Shastri’s iconic commentary, “Dhoni, finishes it off in style; India lifts the World Cup after 28 years,” gets goosebumps and the very next moment fills our hearts with pride. This is the love that Indians have for the game.

To us Indians, cricket is more than just a game of bat and ball played between two teams; it is a religion that brings together communities and we celebrate it as a festival.

Furthermore, cricket has evolved much beyond being a gentleman’s game. It has gained a huge fan following and seen some massive transformations, such as the introduction of new forms like T20 and other leagues, which have made the game more interesting and appealing to the masses. As a result of this introduction, more people wanted to stay up-to-date on game developments and to learn more about cricket and its administration.

However, there were very few resources available online for cricket administration. Recognizing this gap, IISM took steps to fill it. This is not the first time that IISM has attempted to bridge the gap in the sporting world.

In 2010, IISM identified a huge demand for trained sports management professionals in India with no supply. This prompted sports edupreneur Mr. Nilesh Kulkarni to establish IISM with a vision to educate sports enthusiasts about a career in sports management and sports science.

Since then, IISM has trained over 2200+ sports management professionals, who are now working at some of the top sporting organisations in India and abroad.

During the journey, IISM also discovered that there was a great desire among the masses to learn more about the cricketing world. To satisfy the craving of cricket fans, IISM is launching India’s first ever online course on ‘Indian Cricket Beyond the Boundary.’
