Former India opener Shiv Sunder Das has been appointed the batting coach of the Indian women’s team for the tour of England.
Das, who has played 23 Tests between 2000-02, has an average of 34.89 with more than 1300 runs, including two hundreds and nine half centuries.
“It will be good experience and I am looking forward to it,” said the 43-year-old former Odisha skipper.
He has honed his skills as a batting coach at the National Cricket Academy under Rahul Dravid’s guidance and that, he believes, will help him while trying to solve the technical problems of the batters. “I have been part of NCA for last four to five years and have been batting coach for last couple of years. I would like to thank Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly for giving me this opportunity,” said the man who has played all his cricket under the BCCI president’s captaincy.
