The BCCI names Amol Muzumdar as the head coach of the women’s cricket squad.


On Wednesday, Amol Muzumdar, a legend in Indian domestic cricket, was named head coach of the senior women’s squad. Muzumdar scored 111,67 first-class runs in 171 matches including 30 centuries during his 21-year career. He also played 100 List A games and 14 T20 matches.

Amol becomes the head coach of the women’s cricket squad.

“I am deeply honoured and privileged to be appointed as the Head Coach of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team. I thank the CAC and the BCCI for placing their trust in me and believing in my vision and the roadmap for Team India. This is a huge responsibility and I look forward to working closely with talented players and providing them with the right preparation and guidance to excel.” Amol said according to the BCCI press release.

Amol highlighted his goals for the team in the upcoming years. Due to the two World Cups that are coming at those two years, they are quite significant. “We will strive to check all the boxes and give ourselves the best opportunity to succeed, working with the coaching and support team,” he stated.

The role was blank after Ramesh Powar left in 2022. However, interviewing the shortlisted candidates, the Cricket Advisory Committee, which consists of Mr. Ashok Malhotra, Mr. Jatin Paranjape, and Ms. Sulakshana Naik, unanimously recommended Amol.

Honorary Secretary Jay Shah would also congratulate Muzumdar. “I congratulate Mr. Amol Muzumdar on his appointment. He brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise and possesses a keen understanding of the modern game,” he would say.
