Cricket: WV Raman Named Coach Of India’s Women’s Team
India women’s cricket team, who lost in the semi-finals of the ongoing World Twenty20, have now gotten the services of a new coach, and it is none other than previous India batsman WV Raman.
India are right now third in the women’s cricket team ODI rankings and 5th in the T20 format.
They lost to England by eight wickets in their World T20 semi-final in Antigua a month ago.
Ramesh Powar is being replaced by the 53-year-old, Raman, who played 27 ODIs and 11 Tests in a tenure that ranged from 1988-97.
His previous experiences include the coaching of Bengal and Tamil Nadu in the Ranji Trophy and also India U19.
Moreover, WV Raman has also turned into the 4th coach of the women’s cricket team inside the most recent 20 months.
Gary Kirsten was the favored decision yet was not ready to acknowledge the post, as a panel involving previous Indian players, namely Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad & Shantha Rangswamy prescribed ex-South Africa batsman Kirsten for the position.
Be that as it may, Kirsten was not set up to leave his post as head mentor of IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
This led BCCI to appoint the second favorable decision as head coach, WV Raman.
Ex-India off-spinner Powar – who was as of late associated with an open line with veteran star hitter Mithali Raj over her avoidance from the group for that semi-final, after a progression of messages were spilled to the media – reapplied for the mentor’s job, however was not in the best three favored applicants.
Administration continues for screw up with coach selection!
Where in the world one would choose someone when Gary (@Gary_Kirsten ) is in frey!
