On Thursday, former opener WV Raman was preferred over the famous South African Gary Kirsten as the coach of India women cricket team. The 53-year-old Raman is currently working as a batting consultant at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

"Kirsten was the top choice for the BCCI ad-hoc selection committee but Raman got the job as the South African was not keen on giving up his plum job with IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore. He could not be convinced on choosing between IPL and nation al team", said a BCCI official.
