The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) invited applications for the roles of bowling and fielding coaches for the Indian women’s cricket team, on Wednesday.

According to a statement by the BCCI, the candidates selected will be granted two-year contracts. The eligibility criteria include prior representation of India or another nation at the highest level. Alternatively, candidates must hold a minimum National Cricket Academy (NCA) level ‘B’ coaching certification, or an equivalent qualification from a recognized institute.

A playing record of at least 30 first-class matches is also required. Another pathway involves a minimum one-season coaching experience with an international team, or a two-season stint with a T20 franchise/state team.

Recently, Nooshin Al Khadeer took charge as interim head coach during the Bangladesh limited-overs series. However, India is yet to appoint a permanent head coach. A recent report from the PTI news agency disclosed that the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) has recommended domestic batting stalwart, Amol Muzumdar, as a potential candidate for the head coach role.
