New Delhi: Former coach of Indian women’s cricket team WV Raman has accused the national team. Because of this, he has written an e-mail to BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, alleging that the national team has a ‘self-centered culture’ and needs to be changed. Raman has sent this e-mail to Rahul Dravid, the head of the National Cricket Academy and said that if advice is sought from him, he can prepare a blueprint for women’s cricket in the country.
The Cricket Advisory Committee, headed by former cricketer Madan Lal, on Thursday took a surprise decision, choosing Ramesh Powar to replace Raman as the coach of the national women’s team. The team was runner-up in the T20 World Cup last year under Raman’s supervision.
