Hrishikesh Kanitkar was appointed as the new coach of the Women’s team after Ramesh Powar decided to work with the NCA. Talking about the new coach, the captain had high praise for him.
“We had a very good experience with him when we were in Sri Lanka,”
“He was always available whenever it was needed. He brings a lot of experience to the team. We are only looking forward and how we proceed further. We are in the right hands. We are fully okay with whatever decision BCCI is taking.”
“He’s very calm. We needed someone who can give that calmness on the field. You would have seen that in the past at a crucial time, the girls need that support, someone who can guide them with calmness and tell them what and how to do with some clear thoughts. We had experienced that in Sri Lanka.”
