Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala cricket star Sanju Samson, who represents Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League, launched Six Guns Sports Academy here on Thursday.

The academy, that will train both cricket and football players, was officially launched by Thiruvanathapuram Lok Sabha member Shashi Tharoor.

"The academy is just not limited to cricket alone, but football talent would also be trained for greater glory," Sanju said.

"Even though the academy is based in the capital city, the selection camps will be held across the state," he added.

Sanju's father Samson, who represented Delhi Police in football, will be coordinating the academy.

The 23-year-old cricketer said it was his father's idea that along with cricket, the academy also should scout and train talent in football.

"While we rely on coaches who are trained and available here, if need be, we will definitely get coaches from outside also," added Sanju.

On his upcoming IPL season, Sanju said he was waiting to join the Royals as he was fresh with his best domestic season.
