Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Dec 19 (ANI): The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday shortlisted ten names for the position of the women's team head coach.
The shortlisted candidates include Venkatesh Prasad, WV Raman, Brad Hogg, Ramesh Powar, Dimitri Mascarenhas, Trent Johnson, Herschelle Gibbs, Gary Kirsten, Manoj Prabhakar and Kalpana Venkatachar, according to sources.
Following the end of Powar's interim contract on November 30, the BCCI, on the same day, advertised for the post, fuelling speculations that the Board is looking to replace Powar after Mithali Raj criticised him and selectors for keeping her out of the playing XI against England in the World T20 semi-finals.
On December 11, the BCCI had formed an ad-hoc committee to conduct the interviews of eligible candidates for the post. The panel consisted of legendary Indian cricketers Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy.
The interview of the shortlisted candidates will be conducted on December 20 at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai. (ANI)
