Indian women's cricket coach Tushar Arothe quits over 'training methods'

Indian women's cricket coach Tushar Arothe quits over 'training methods'

The resignation of Arothe is the second instance in the CoA tenure where the national coach has resigned in response to variances of opinions with players.

Indian women's cricket team head coach Tushar Arothe has resigned from his role, four months ahead of the ICC Women's World T20 in West Indies, the BCCI confirmed on Tuesday.

Last month, Arothe wasn't invited to a meeting attended by Mithali Raj, the ODI skipper, Harmanpreet Kaur, the T20I captain, Vinod Rai, the chief of BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA) and Diana Edulji. BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary, GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim and CEO Rahul Johri were also present. "There has been adverse reports about his coaching methods from players, selectors and even the team manager", a senior official who chose to be anonymous, told PTI. Earlier this year, the team successfully reached the final of the Asia Cup held in Malaysia.

CoA member Diana Edulji, a former India captain, is now calling the shots as far as women's cricket is concerned.

A former batting allrounder and Ranji Trophy victor with Baroda, Arothe took over as head coach in April 2017 after the removal of Purnima Rau from the job, two months ahead of the World Cup in England. He was also tasked with the responsibility, along with George, to scout players for the India A sides that played against Australia and England in Mumbai in March.

One of the major reason of discontent was Arothe's training methods.

Four months before the T20 World Cup in West Indies, Indian women's cricket team coach Tushar Arothe has stepped down from his assigned role on Tuesday. Two mandatory practice sessions of roughly two-and-a-half-hours each in the morning and late afternoon, and an optional afternoon session, had been a feature of India's regime since a year ago. Arothe was also in charge of the India A side that beat Bangladesh A in December previous year.

"We will again put up an advertisement and interview process will be followed", said the official.
