Former India off-spinner Ramesh Powar has become the coach of the Indian women’s team for the second time. After being appointed the head coach of the team, this coach has stated his next goal. Pawar said that he is eager to take the Indian women’s team to new heights. This is Pawar’s second innings with the Indian women’s team. Earlier, he was the coach of this team from July to November 2018.
Ramesh Powar’s name was then in a lot of controversies due to Mitali Raj (Mitali Raj) being left out of the playing XI in an important T20 match and after that, he was removed from the post of coach, and former Indian cricketer WV Raman was made the coach. Now once again, the 3-member BCCI Advisory Committee has reposed trust in Pawar.
After becoming the coach, Ramesh Powar tweeted, ‘I am eager to take Indian women’s cricket to new heights. Thank you to the CAC and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for giving me this opportunity. ‘
By the way, if Ramesh Powar left the dispute with Mithali in his first term, then his tenure was brilliant. At that time, under her own coaching, the Indian women’s team had traveled to the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup. Apart from this, the Indian women’s team also won 14 consecutive T20 matches.
Raman congratulated Ramesh Powar and said, ‘Good luck on being appointed coach of the women’s team. I am eager to see the women team players playing under your leadership. ‘
The BCCI and Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) on Thursday appointed Ramesh Powar as the coach of the women’s team in place of Raman. The BCCI had received more than 35 applications for this post. But the board chose Pawar as the suitable candidate. Ramesh Pawar has played 2 Tests and 31 ODIs for the Indian team.
