Former Assam cricketer Subhadeep Ghosh has been appointed the fielding coach of the Indian women’s team for the upcoming tour of Australia. The multi-format tour will also see Amogh Pandit travelling with the squad as trainer.
Speaking to ANI, sources in the know of developments confirmed the two appointments. “Subhadeep will be the fielding coach while Amogh is going as the trainer. For now, it is for the Australia tour and a call on a long-term appointment will be taken at the right times,” the source said.
The All-India Senior Women’s Selection Committee on Tuesday picked the squads for India Women’s upcoming tour of Australia. The series will comprise 3 ODIs, one day-night Test match and three T20Is. Sneh Rana who gave spirited performances against England in the multi-format series earlier this year has found a place in all three squads.
