The report titled ‘Let’s Play’ said, “Efforts need to be undertaken at each level, from family and communities to schools, regional academies, states and national level.”

It added, “These efforts need to be aimed at radically increasing the level of sporting activities, filling the gaps in the system and monitoring for lags.”

The recommendations also includes, developing a school curriculum, inclusive of both sports and academics and the need to encourage children to focus on a specialized sport. It has also added that it needs to take lot of experience and drawing from Cricket’s Indian Premier League (IPL) to attract investment and increase viewership.
