Mumbai: Indian women's cricket coach tushar Arothe on Tuesday resigned from the post with less than five months to go for the ICC Women's World Twenty20 in West Indies.
Arothe's resignation comes exactly a month after Harmanpreet Kaur's India women lost the Asia Cup T20 final to Bangladesh by three wickets. This was notably the Women in Blue's first loss in an Asia Cup final.
"The Board would like to convey that it has been a pleasure working with Mr. Arothe and would like to thank him for his services towards the Indian Women’s team," a BCCI media release was quoted saying.
"Under his stint, the team reached the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup in 2017. In 2018, the team won the 3-match ODI series & 5-match T20I series in South Africa. Earlier this year, the team successfully reached the final of the Asia Cup held in Malaysia," the release added.
India play New Zealand in their World T20 opener on November 9 in Guyana. The final will take place on November 24. They have not won the tournament so far.
