Former India cricketer Ramesh Powar, who was appointed Indian women's head coach on Thursday, said that he would try and take the team forward.

Powar, in his second stint as national women's coach, replaces another former India cricketer, WV Raman.


In response, the outgoing coach Raman wished him luck. 

Earlier on Thursday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) picked Powar to replace Raman.

"The three-member Cricket Advisory Committee comprising Sulakshana Naik, Madan Lal and Rudra Pratap Singh [junior] interviewed the applicants and unanimously agreed on Powar's candidature," said a BCCI statement.

Powar, a former off-spinner, will be in charge of the senior women's team.

The BCCI received over 35 applications for the post.

Powar played two Test matches and 31 ODIs for India.

After his playing career, Powar took up cricket coaching and is an ECB level 2 certified coach, and has also attended BCCI-National Cricket Academy level 2 coaching course.
