VVS Laxman could actively participate and play a bigger role in Indian women’s cricket after the release of Ramesh Powar – reports

Former Indian striker and head of the National Cricket Academy (NCA), VVS Laxman, is likely to be actively involved in Indian women’s cricket and play a bigger role in mentoring the next generation of cricketers after Ramesh Powar leaves the team.

India’s women’s cricket team failed to reach the semifinals of the current ICC 2022 Women’s World Cup. India led by Mithali Raj lost its last group stage match in a 3-door thriller match against South Africa at Hagley Oval, Christchurch on Sunday, March 27, 2022 ., to drop out of the tournament.

Meanwhile, after India left the tournament, the contract of the head coach of the Indian women’s national team Ramesh Powar has expired.

“Powar’s contract was until the World Cup. There is no provision for extension. So the whole process starts with applications and interviews. Powar can certainly re-apply and the CAC (Cricket Advisory Board), according to the constitution, will accept the invitation, ”a senior BCCI source told PTI on condition of anonymity.

Namely, Powar got the job of head coach in the women’s national cricket team of India after the departure of WV Raman, which led the team to the finals of the T20 2020 World Cup. The cricket fraternity was shocked after Raman was not offered an extension after a good performance.

“The CAC is taking over the call and if they thought Ramesh would be better than Raman, it was their call. The board cannot interfere, “said the source.

Also, there was tension between the two senior Indian cricketers after the series in New Zealand, and head coach Powar did very little to ease the tension between the two, according to PTI.

Former Indian striker and head of the National Cricket Academy (NCA), VVS Laxmanwill play a major role in making long-term plans for India’s women’s national cricket team.

Also, the inaugural U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup is set to begin next year, and the Cricket Supervisory Board of India (BCCI) wants to prepare the next group of players under Laxman’s leadership.

Meanwhile, finding a replacement for veteran Pacer Jhulan Goswami is one of the most difficult tasks for the administration.

“Even if you pass by Mithali, there are not too many substitutes in the case of Jhulan. So this is also a problem that the board is facing. We hope that the planned WIPL will reveal enough talent for the future “, said the source.
