Harmanpreet Kaur denies any fall out with former coach Ramesh Powar
12/8/2022 11:08:42 PM
NEW DELHI, Dec 8: Indian women's cricket team skipper Harmanpreet Kaur on Thursday denied any fallout with Ramesh Powar who has been sacked as the head coach with less than two months to go for the T20 World Cup. In a repeat of the 2018 saga when Powar was replaced as the head coach after being at loggerheads with then captain Mithali Raj, the former India spinner once again faced the axe and was shunted to the National Cricket Academy, reportedly on request of Harmanpreet.
Harmanpreet, however, categorically denied the reports of rift and termed it a "decision" taken by the BCCI.
Well, it's nothing like that. I've always enjoyed working with Ramesh sir whenever I got an opportunity. We have learnt a lot from him and grown as a team," she said on the eve of their five-match T20I series against Australia.
"It's the BCCI's decision who's moved to NCA. He will work there as the spin coach, and whenever we'll go to NCA, Ramesh sir is always available."
The board has now roped in Hrishikesh Kanitkar as the batting coach of the team and he will be at the helm for the series against Australia.
Former India all-rounder Kanitkar was in charge when they won a series in Sri Lanka and Harmanpreet said he's the "apt candidate" for the job and that the team is in the right hands.
Hailing his "calmness", she said: "We had a very good experience with him when we were in Sri Lanka.
"He was always available whenever it's needed. He brings a lot of experience to the team. We are only looking forward and how we proceed further. We are in right hands. We are fully okay with whatever the decision BCCI is taking.
He's very calm. We needed someone who can give that calmness on the field. You would have seen that in the past at a crucial time, the girls need that support, someone who can guide with calmness and tell us what and how to do with some clear thoughts. We had experienced that in Sri Lanka."
She further said the team was very excited when they got to know that Kanitkar was coming on board.
"It would have been difficult if it was a new coach, but we have already worked with Hrishi sir.
"I don't think there will be any problem. If a new coach would have come we would have to explain a lot of things, how we are working.
