The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has sought applications for the position of head coach of its senior team, including, among other things, eligibility criteria for a minimum of 50 first-class matches.
“On the recommendation of the Cricket Improvement Committee, applications are currently being invited for the position of head coach of men’s teams in Mumbai,” the MCA said in a note posted on its website, adding that interested candidates must apply before May 24.
According to his application criteria, the candidate “must have played at least 50 first-class matches, must be an NCA certified coach, have experience in training a national team /IPL franchisee / NCA and must reside in Mumbai. “
Last season, Mumbai initially appointed Amit Pagnis to coach the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, but he resigned after his disastrous show at the T20 national tournament.
The body of the cricket then named former Indian off-player Ramesh Poir as the head coach of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, which the local giants won.
Mumbai has won the coveted Ranji Trophy a record 41 times.
