Former India cricketer Deep Dasgupta believes that Ramesh Powar, the new India Women coach, and Mithali Raj, the ODI captain, should call each other first and settle their differences.

Ramesh Powar, who held the same job at the time, was fired in 2018 after a feud with Mithali Raj. After the Harmanpreet Kaur-led T20 team dropped the veteran batter for the crucial World Cup semifinal against England, the 38-year-old accused the former India cricketer of bias.

Powar "was out to destroy and humiliate" Mithali, Mithali said in a letter to the BCCI after the incident. Mithali "threw a lot of tantrums and caused confusion in the squad," according to Powar.

Deep Dasgupta, a former cricketer who now works as a commentator, has confirmed that "legendary" Mithali and his close friend Powar should talk and work out their differences because their ultimate objective remains the same.

"We don't know what happened there, but we all know something did." Mithali is your 50-over captain, and there are no two ways about it: she is a legend. That is the first thing that must be addressed. When you have someone as senior as Mithali, who has already had a problem with Ramesh, I believe the making that phone call to sort things out is one of the first things that should be done.

"The goal remains the same: a successful Indian team. So, I believe the first thing that will happen is a phone call, a conversation between them, and a sorting out of any disagreements they might have had in the past. That should not be a reason for the team to break. They may have disagreed on some points, but their ultimate target is the same " the former wicketkeeper-batsman told in an interview. 

The England tour, where India women will play a Test, three ODIs, and as many T20Is, will be the first assignment of the newly-appointed coach, who took over from WV Raman on Thursday.

Mithali Raj has hinted that after next year's 50-over World Cup, she will retire from international cricket.
