India's Jain set to become Bangladesh women’s cricket team head coach
Bangladesh women’s cricket team head coach David Capel is all set to hand over the charge to former Indian wicket-keeper Anju Jain. According to a cricket-based website, the former Indian cricketer will take over the role of head coach following the Bangladesh women’s tour of South Africa. According to the report, Capel’s 18-month contract with the BCB has not been extended. Bangladesh made a losing start to the tour of South Africa, suffering a 106-run loss in the first match of the five-game ODI series Friday at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom. The tourist will also play a three-match T20I series against the host. According to the report on ESPNcricinfo, “the finer details of Jain's deal are yet to be worked out, it is understood that she will join the national team on a six-month contract and take over as soon as they return from South Africa on May 21. She will be joined by her former India colleague Devika Palshikar and Anuja Dalvi, who are already onboard as assistant coach and physio respectively”. Jain said she is excited to take charge of a national team and help Bangladesh qualify for the Women’s World T20 later this year.

"At this moment, the biggest challenge is to help the team qualify for the Women's World T20 in the West Indies. There is talent, but you need to give them games. Our primary responsibility as a coaching group will be to ensure they develop the finer skill sets, and that will come with experience," said Jain. Bangladesh in the World T20 qualifiers, scheduled to take place in July in the Netherlands, have been grouped with Ireland, Papua New Guinea, Scotland, the home side, Uganda, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates. Teams finishing first and second in the qualifiers will join the top eight teams in the main event. Jain is a Level-B certified BCCI coach and has extensively taken part in exchange programmes with CA. Her involvement with Bangladesh means she will step down as head coach of Vidarbha women's team. She previously coached India at the 2012 Women's World T20 and the 2013 Women’s World Cup.
