Women’s cricket team coach Arothe resigns

  • Arothe's resignation comes exactly a month after Harmanpreet Kaur's India women lost the Asia Cup T20 final to Bangladesh by three wickets

Indian women's cricket team coach Arothe resigned as head coach on Tuesday (10th July) over the alleged differences with some of the senior players, who had protested against his training methods.

Previously, India Men's head coach - Anil Kumble - too had resigned after his much-known differences with skipper Virat Kohli. "Mr. Arothe cited personal reasons behind his resignation and thanked the BCCI for giving him an opportunity to work with the Indian women's cricket team", the BCCI said in a media release.

Rau in his second tenure as India's coach since mid-2015 had overseen home success against New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Windies, maiden T20I series win in Australia, successful defence of Asia Cup and the World Cup Qualifier title.

However, a senior BCCI official told Press Trust of India (PTI) that Arothe was forced to resign after some senior players, with reasonable influence, wanted his immediate ouster. In the meeting, BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary, GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim and CEO Rahul Johri were also present.

The mural was vandalized earlier this week. 'I can't see anyone getting mad about the whole team, ' Never said. However, vandals threw paint on the mural, prompting the original artist Jonas Never to cover it up entirely.

It was at the instance of the same senior players that the BCCI appointed Arothe as coach.

The Indian women's cricket coach has quit just over year into the job after a string of defeats and apparently alienating players, four months before the World Twenty20.

The dynamics between the team and Arothe are understood to have been fairly healthy as recently as the tour of South Africa in February - their first assignment since the World Cup - when India won both limited-overs series. After India's fine showing in the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 in England, the BCCI offered Arothe a two-year contract in November 2017. However, below-par performances at home against Australia and in the T20 tri-series featuring Australia and England seem to have played a part in the discontent between some of the high-profile regulars and Arothe.

A BCCI official stated that they will put up an advertisement again and an interview will follow it.
