Earlier this year, the ACB had urged BCCI to help them in development of the game in their country and also requested the Indian Board to ensure that their players get to use the state of the art facilities in India.
It has been learnt that ACB requested BCCI to make at least one of their multiple venues available to their players and Thakur had promised them to help in this regard.
The Indian government had also approved a grant of USD 1 million for construction of a cricket stadium in Kandahar.
