On Thursday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) appointed WV Raman as head coach of India Women’s Cricket team. In a press release of BCCI, Raman’s appointment was decided on proposals of the specially appointed board of trustees containing Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad, and Shantha Rangaswamy. This special force conducted interviews for the shortlisted competitors at the BCCI headquarter in Mumbai on Thursday.
In the release, it was Gary Kirsten, who drove the Indian men’s group to the 2011 World Cup success, was given the first preference for the head coach job but he was unable to take up the task because of his responsibility with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Later in the statement, the committee decided to select based on the order of preference: Gary Kirsten, WV Raman, and Venkatesh Prasad. The 53-year-old WV Raman is currently a batting mentor at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.
It seems not everything goes well.
In a letter, Anirudh Chaudhry condemns the Committee of Administrators (CoA) chairman Vinod Rai, saying that it was appalling to pick India women’s cricket team head coach as the Supreme Court inquiry was scheduled for January 17.
CoA member Diana Edulji has likewise written to CoA chairman, requesting that he put the interview process on hold. Including, she slams calling the procedure of appointment, unlawful and illegal.
It is flashed that Diana Edulji needed Ramesh Powar to proceed until the New Zealand tour commencing next month. As Powar’s debatable action period has ended up on November 30 after severe aftermath with ODI captain and senior player Mithali Raj over team comparison issues during the World Cup, Vinod Rai instructed the BCCI to call new candidates.
