The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) has decided to appoint Ramesh Powar for a second stint as Head Coach of India Women ahead of their Test and limited-overs tour of England.
The BCCI received over 35 applications for the role, after which the three-member Cricket Advisory Committee – comprising Sulakshana Naik, Madan Lal, and Rudra Pratap Singh – interviewed the applicants and unanimously agreed on reappointing Powar.
Powar, who played for India in 33 men's international matches in the 2000s, had a previous stint as coach of India Women in an interim capacity between July and November 2018. He is an ECB Level 2 certified coach, and has also attended BCCI-NCA Level 2 coaching course.
In his first spell in the role, India reached the semifinals of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2018, and won 14 T20 matches in a row.
Powar will now take charge of the side ahead of the tour of England, comprising one Test, beginning on 16 June, followed by three ODIs and as many T20Is.
