In somewhat of a twist, former Indian cricketer and mainstay of the Mumbai Cricket bowling unit Ramesh Powar has been named as the interim coach of the India Women’s Cricket team. The news comes following the resignation of former coach Tushar Arothe who resigned a few days back while the Harmanpreet Kaur issue of her employment in the Punjab police was taking place.

Arother, a former first-class cricketer has ensured that the Indian women do indeed give a good account of themselves in recent times with both bat and ball. They secured an impressive win in the ODI tour to South Africa before being hammered out of sight by England and Australia in the tri-series.

However, despite this, he resigned, presenting an opportunity for the BCCI to appoint someone who will bring about a profound and cultural change in the Indian Women’s cricketing spectrum at least. “This will be an interim coaching role for Powar. His job will be to oversee the camp and work with the women cricketers during the week-long camp,” a source in the Board said late on Sunday.

However, with all the heckling and other such things going about, Ramesh Powar has now taken the reigns of the side and has promised that he will ensure that they perform well. He also said that he would put his best foot forward and pull in all the efforts to make sure the players give a good account of themselves.

“I am happy that the BCCI has given me the responsibility and I will put my best foot forward and will put in best efforts to take Indian women’s cricket ahead,” Powar told Sportstar.
