Amol Muzumdar all set to be the head coach of the Indian women's cricket team
It was Muzumdar, the former Mumbai batter, who impressed the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) the most during the interviews of the short-listed candidates in Mumbai on Monday.
The CAC comprised Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjpe and Sulakshana Naik. The others who were interviewed were former Durham coach Jon Lewis and Tushar Arothe, who had already served as India head coach before resigning in 2018.
The development comes days before the commencement of India's tour of Bangladesh. India were without a head coach since December last year when Ramesh Powar was sacked.
"The CAC was most impressed with Amol's presentation, who was very clear in his plans for the women's team. The other presentations were good too but his was by far the best. He will most likely be recommended for the job," a BCCI official told PTI.
Muzumdar's first assignment will be the tour of Bangladesh, beginning July 9. India will play three T20s and as many ODIs in Mirpur. India will host the women's ODI World Cup in September 2025.
