This website is dedicated to Shri Akbarkhan Babi, one
of three Saurashtra's present days famous cricket coach, Shri
Velji Master, (Who coached Great Amar Singh) and Shri V. L.
Nakum. These three prominent Saurashtrian cricket coaches
helped many prominent cricketers of Western Zone to blossom
into name and fame. I would like to especially shed light
on Shri Akbar khan Babi's dedication and contribution through
Saurashtra, Gujarat, Bombay, and Baroda cricket associations.
In the last forty years, his coaching camp in Rajkot known
as RSA produced at least 70-80 cricketers with national and
international caliber. Some of his cricketers played prominently
in India and abroad. I, Niranjan Mehta, am one of his beneficiaries.
I also respectfully remember some of the extremely talented
cricketers of my time coached by Akbarkhan Babi these cricketers
never had the opportunity to represent India but should have.
Namely: Uday Joshi, Atul Mehta, Jaswant Bakrania, and Arvind
Panchasara. Mahendra Rajdev, Bhupendra Mandavia. Dhiraj Parsana
was the only one who played 4-5 Test Matches for India against
