The Mumbai team is one of the best in the premier domestic first-class competition the Ranji Trophy. They have won the most number of tournaments, a total of 41, and have always been a force to reckon with. They finished as the runners-up to Gujarat in the last season and there is a possibility that the team might have a new coach for the upcoming season.

Reports suggest that Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) is looking to replace their current coach Chandrakant Pandit for the top job with another former Mumbai player. Pravin Amre, former India and Mumbai batsman has been considered as the prime candidate for this job, and Amre himself revealed it.

Amre has not met the MCA officials to discuss anything on this as yet 

In a chat with CricketNext, Amre confirmed that although a meeting with the MCA officials is yet to take place, he has been approached about the possibility of taking over as Mumbai Ranji Trophy team’s next coach.

“It is very important to have a proper meeting with the officials, only then can a roadmap be charted out. But yes, it feels good to be considered for the job as Mumbai is India’s top domestic team,” Amre was quoted as saying.

He is a seasoned coach in Indian domestic cricket and has been associated with Delhi Daredevils team as the batting coach under Rahul Dravid. Amre played 11 Test matches and 37 one-day internationals for India and is excited about the possibility of coaching the team he was once a part of as a player.

“Mumbai has a rich history in Ranji Trophy and it is definitely an opportunity worth considering from my end. I have represented the Mumbai team in Ranji Trophy as a player and becoming the coach of the team will be a proud achievement. Although I must mention that nothing has been finalised yet and I am yet to meet MCA officials,” he said.
