New Delhi:

BCCI is all geared up to invite applications in order to fill the post of bowling coach for the Indian women’s cricket team.

Currently, former Baroda’s all-rounder Tushar Arothe is heading the women’s team who has scored 6105 runs in the first-class cricket and has 225 wickets in his name.

Biju George has been doing a decent job as fielding coach.

A senior BCCI official told PTI, ‘’The women's team management has expressed the need of a bowling coach. We will soon start the hunt for a suitable candidate by inviting applications’’.

‘’The applicants need not have an international background. Even Tushar has not played for India so that really is not a factor’’, the official added.

The team for the upcoming Asia Cup will be announced later this week.

Talking about the team’s performance lately, India have had a mixed run since making the World Cup final in England last July.

They beat hosts South Africa in their ICC ODI Championship-opener before being thrashed by Australia at home.

They also failed to make the final at home in the subsequent T20 tri-series involving Australia and England in March.

The Mithali Raj-led squad then made amends by beating England 2-1 in a three-match ODI series.
