CAC starts interviewing for coach, selector


The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) conducted interviews for the women’s coach. The interviews will continue on Tuesday, after Monday’s proceedings remained inconclusive.

The BCCI is expected to announce the women’s coach within two days, and possibly on Tuesday. Tushar Arothe, Amol Muzumdar, and John Lewis are the shortlisted candidates.Muzumdar attended the interview in person, whereas the other two were interviewed online. The temporary BCCI office in Worli, Mumbai, was where all three CAC members were present.

Some candidates were also interviewed for the national selection committee, but there is no information yet on whether Ajit Agarkar has been called in for an interview. Agarkar is currently out of the country and will only be available online if he has not yet been interviewed by the CAC.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is expected to announce the new chairman of the men’s selection committee along with the new women’s coach soon. It is unclear if the new coach will travel with the women’s team to Bangladesh for the July 9-22 white-ball series.

However, if Amol Muzumdar is selected, he could potentially join the team. The Indian men’s team, minus the players selected for the ODIs, have assembled in Bridgetown, Barbados. The team’s attempt to have a net session at the Kensington Oval on Monday was unsuccessful due to rain.

They plan to practice in the evening and then have a two-day match among themselves, with some local players joining them. After that, the team will move to Dominica for the first Test, which begins on July 12.
