Jaisimha link at the Eden

Calcutta: There's a Jaisimha link to the India-England Test, which begins on Wednesday: Vidyuth, younger son of the late ML Jaisimha, is the Board's observer.

Vidyuth, who is Hyderabad based like the rest of the family, runs the Jaisimha Cricket Academy, which is exclusively an indoor facility.

"The academy started in 2005 and has been used by the likes of VVS Laxman for years. In fact, Rahul Dravid has also spent time at our facility," Vidyuth, a vice-president of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA), told The Telegraph.

Elder brother Vivek is associated with the HCA's academy.
