Former India off-spinner, Ramesh Powar recently displayed his urge to coach the Mumbai Ranji team. The position of head coach has been left vacant since the resignation of former India wicket-keeper, Sameer Dighe. Dighe stepped down just after one season.

Earlier, Powar resigned as the spin consultant at the Mumbai Cricket Associations’ BKC facility. The resignation came in response to his request of holding a camp for young spinners getting rejected. But recently, he is willing to guide and coach the Mumbai team.

“I want to apply for the job. I was there for six-seven months, and I know exactly what the issues in the system are. I am extremely emotionally attached to Mumbai cricket and would like to give something back to it. I know where our team lacks at the moment, and what can be done to rectify it,” Ramesh Powar.

Earlier six players were invited by the secretary of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) – skipper Aditya Tare, Suryakumar Yadav, Abhishek Nayar, Dhawal Kulkarni and Shardul Thakur – to discuss the future of Mumbai cricket. At that time, Omkar Salvi was recommended as a candidate for the position of Mumbai head coach.
