Ramesh Powar appointed India women's team coach till WT20

Mumbai, Aug 14 (UNI) Ramesh Powar, the former India off-spinner, has been appointed

Head Coach of the national women's team till the ICC World T20 scheduled in November


Powar, who was in charge of the team in an interim capacity since Tushar Arothe's

resignation from the position in July, will continue to oversee the side. He "has now been

handed over full time duties till November 30, 2018," the Board of Control for Cricket in

India (BCCI) said on Tuesday.

Powar was asked to take over after India lost in the final of the Asia Cup to Bangladesh

– after losing a group-stage game to the same opponents – in Kuala Lumpur on June 10.

His extended term with the national team will now include tours to Sri Lanka and the

Caribbean, which will include the ICC Women's World T20 2018, to start in November, in

the West Indies.

Powar, now 40, played two Tests and 31 one-day internationals between 2004 and 2007,

picking up 40 wickets overall.

He also played over a decade-and-a-half of first-class cricket, mainly for Mumbai,

returning 470 wickets at an average of 31.31.
