Tushar Arothe resigns as India women's cricket coach

Arothe's resignation comes exactly a month after Harmanpreet Kaur's India women lost the Asia Cup T20 final to Bangladesh by three wickets

"In my personal capacity and on behalf of BCCI I would like to thank Tushar as under his guidance the women's cricket team did a very good job, especially at the last year's Cricket World Cup".

Previously, India Men's head coach - Anil Kumble - too had resigned after his much-known differences with skipper Virat Kohli.

India Women's Cricket Team Coach Tushar Arothe has stepped down from the role citing personal reasons, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said on Tuesday. However, with India ending runners-up to England at the mega-event, Arothe, along with assistant coach Biju George and physiotherapist Tracy Fernandes, were handed a two-year contract by the BCCI.

A senior BCCI official was quoted by media saying, "Arothe was forced to resign after few senior players with reasonable influence, wanted his immediate ouster".

A BCCI release on Tuesday said: "The BCCI has accepted coach Tushar Arothe's resignation. There has been adverse reports about his coaching methods from players, selectors and even the team manager", a senior official who chose to be anonymous, told PTI.

Do you own an iPhone? New study says you're probably rich
In 2004, the second batch of data showed Land O' Lakes Regular butter was the clearest indication you were earning good money. The smartphone, in the modern world, is as much a necessity now as condiments in the early 1990s were, the data suggests.

CoA member Diana Edulji, a former India captain, is now calling the shots as far as women's cricket is concerned. Reports had surfaced about the discord in the team soon after India failed to defend their Asia Cup title, in Malaysia last month.

While India enjoyed a memorable tour of South Africa earlier in the year, their form since has been patchy at best, with defeats to Australia in a bilateral series and in the T20I tri-series, also involving England.

A former batting allrounder and Ranji Trophy victor with Baroda, Arothe took over as head coach in April 2017 after the removal of Purnima Rau from the job, two months ahead of the World Cup in England. The team had a boring T20 tri-series against Australia and England in India.

It was due to their protest that the Indian team's camp from June 15 to 25 was cancelled as BCCI was getting ready to show Arothe the door.
