Mumbai:The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday invited applications for the new head coach of the women’s cricket team. After the resignation of Romesh Powar, the post of head coach of the Indian women’s cricket team has been lying vacant and now the BCCI has started the process of filling it. Powar was shifted to the National Cricket Academy in December last year.
The BCCI has issued a statement in this regard on its website, stating that it is necessary for those applying for this post to have played international cricket for India or any other country. Or he should have a level C coaching certificate from NCA or any similar institute. Or that person should have played at least 50 first class matches.

These people can also apply
Apart from these, if the applicant has at least one season’s experience of coaching an international team, then that person can also apply. On the other hand, if a coach has coached a T20 franchise for two seasons, he can also apply for this post. However, no age limit has been specified for the applicants. But according to the policy of BCCI, a person above 60 years will not be considered valid for this post.
The last date to apply for this post is May 10. After this, the BCCI will shortlist the candidates and then send them to the Cricket Advisory Committee headed by former cricketer Ashok Malhotra, who will interview them.

World Cup played without a coach
The women’s team currently does not have a coach. This team, captained by Harmanpreet Kaur, played without any coach in the T20 World Cup played in South Africa this year. No one has come to this post since Powar left for NCA. The BCCI had given the responsibility of the women’s team to Rishikesh Kanitkar at the time of the World Cup. This time the BCCI will try to appoint a coach for a long time.
