Many things have changed for the better in Indian women’s cricket. Among the most noticeable ones is the team's fielding. This was on full display during the T20I series against South Africa that concluded on Friday. The ground fielding and catching of the Women in Blue was of high standard.
However, fielding coach Biju George, who could understandably take credit for the dramatic improvement the players have made over the past couple of years, is set to be relieved of his duties at the end of the month.
Sportstar has reliably learnt that the BCCI is unlikely to renew Biju’s two-year contract, though there is an option to extend it. With CoA member and former Indian women’s captain Diana Edulji insisting that the women’s team too needs full-time support staff, the BCCI could soon be looking for a fielding coach.
This comes at a crucial juncture with the T20 World Cup in Australia all of four months away.
