Indian women’s cricket team coach Tushar Arothe on Wednesday stepped down from his post. The former Baroda cricketer resigned from his post due to many reasons and players’ protest against his innovative training methods.
As per reports, Tushar Arothe handed over his resignation to the cricket regulatory board on Tuesday. After the resignation, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in a presser said that Women’s coach has stepped down due to his personal reasons.
In a press release, BCCI said that they have accepted the resignation of Indian women’s team coach Tushar Arothe. Mr Arothe thanked the cricket regulatory board and resigned due to some personal reasons.
After the resignation, a senior BCCI official said that it was almost final after the meeting between administrators and senior players. In the meeting, BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary, GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim and CEO Rahul Johri were also present.
“There have been adverse reports about Tushar Arothe’s coaching methods from senior players, selectors and even from the team manager,” said a senior BCCI official.
This is the second time during the CoA tenure that a national coach has stepped down after players’ revolt. Last year, men’s team head coach Anil Kumble resigned after his much-publicised differences with captain Virat Kohli.
