India women's cricket coach quits after Bangladesh loss

India women's cricket coach quits after Bangladesh loss

Immediately, reports of alleged discord between Arothe and some of the high-profile players surfaced.

Despite being portrayed as another case of fallout between the players and the coach in the Indian cricketing world, Tushar Arothe has been quoted as saying that he was not particularly happy with the way the Committee of Administrators (CoA) managed the entire affair.

India Women's Cricket Team Coach Tushar Arothe has stepped down from the role citing personal reasons, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said on Tuesday.

"There's no hard feelings between the players and myself and any other support staff". Earlier in the year, the team successfully reached the final of the Asia Cup held in Malaysia.

Arothe replaced Purnima Rao previous year.

A BCCI release on Tuesday said: "The BCCI has accepted coach Tushar Arothe's resignation".

India's breakout run in the tournament, where they finished runners-up, however, earned him a two-year extension. "There has been adverse reports about his coaching methods from players, selectors and even the team manager", a senior official who chose to be anonymous, told PTI. After that, the team had also won the ODI and T20 series in South Africa in February this year but ever since that things haven't been merry for the team.

India had a dismal T20 tri-series against England and Australia and then lost the ODI series against the Southern Stars. He was also tasked with the responsibility, along with George, to scout players for the India A sides that played against Australia and England in Mumbai in March. While the coach was keen on having two practice sessions of two and half hours each in morning and afternoon, some of the seniors in their mid-30s were finding it hard to cope with the strenuous schedule. Arothe was also in charge of the India A side that beat Bangladesh A in December past year.
