Gary Kirsten, WV Raman shortlisted for Indian women’s cricket coach’s job

Mumbai : India’s World Cup-winning former men’s coach Gary Kirsten and ex-opener W V Raman were on Thursday short-listed for the post of the women’s team coach.

The BCCI’s ad-hoc committee comprising former captain Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy recommended the shortlisted names to the Board. However, a cloud of uncertainty remains over Kirsten’s appointment as the South African is not keen on giving up his plum job with Indian Premier League franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore. Efforts are being made to convince him, according to sources.

The other shortlisted candidates out of the 28 applicants who were interviewed are Venkatesh Prasad, Manoj Prabhakar, Trent Johnston, Dimitri Mascarenhas, Brad Hogg and Kalpana Venkatachar.
