The Indian women’s cricket team’s coaching rotation should end, People Blame BCCI
India and the BCCI must start over, have a clear vision in place, and guarantee continuity with regard to support staff. The BCCI decided to shuffle last December, barely two months before the competition, as the team had three different head coaches for each of the previous three T20 World Cups. Ramesh Powar, who has served as the head coach since 2021, was transferred to the National Cricket Academy’s men’s wing in an internal move that had little indication of its impending arrival.
Hrishikesh Kanitkar, who had been serving as a batting consultant for the senior women’s squad, the men’s Under-19 and A teams, and the T20 World Cup team, was given control of the group. The BCCI provided Troy Cooley, a quick bowling coach that the team thought was essential for the conditions in South Africa, to help him. Since spin was one of their team’s best suits and Powar was absent, nobody was available to help players like Deepti Sharma, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Radha Yadav, and Devika Vaidya.

Australia reach final of ICC Women’s T20 World Cup for 7th time
With the win, Australia has secured a spot in the T20 World Cup final for a record-tying seventh time. Australia will watch to see who wins between South Africa and England. The championship will be on February 26th, a Sunday.
Without a doubt, this team is not like the men’s side, which favors a man-manager over a coach with sophisticated tactical knowledge. The women’s squad needs a lot of support personnel who are technically proficient and can help them strategically on the field given their young and the system they grow up in.
