No more ad hoc appointments; support staff for the Indian women’s cricket team will be offered long-term contracts

Indian's women's cricket team

The Indian women’s cricket team’s support staff will no longer be hired on an as-needed basis; instead, the BCCI will provide them long-term contracts. According to the BCCI constitution, the Cricket Advisory Committee should choose the head coach, while the selectors should choose the assistant coaches. However, the BCCI has occasionally appointed coaches from the National Cricket Academy on a temporary basis, circumventing the rigorous compliance of the rule governing the women’s team support personnel, including the batting, fielding, and bowling coach.

“All of the coaches will be granted long-term contracts; this is not going to be a short-term situation like in the past. The squad would get much-needed consistency as a result, a BCCI source informed PTI.

The choice was made on Sunday during the virtual Apex Council meeting.

The women’s cricket team has been without a head coach since Ramesh Powar was fired in December, and they even competed in the T20 World Cup without him or her in February.

The first phase in the senior women’s team’s preparation for the upcoming ICC event will be reducing the coaching procedure because it has yet to win a global championship.

The 2023–2027 cycle’s local and international media rights for the home season were also on the agenda, but no firm decisions were made in this regard.

The BCCI would have high expectations for the media rights for the 2023–2027 cycle following the Rs 48,390 crore bonanza from the IPL media rights. There will be a three-way competition between Viacom, Star, and Sony now that they have entered the Indian cricket industry.

For the IPL, the BCCI made significant profits by selling the broadcast and digital rights separately, and it is anticipated that it will do the same for the home international matches. The last cycle, which ended on March 31, cost Star Rs 6,138.1 crore.
