Amol Mazumdar appointed as head coach of Mumbai’s senior men’s team

Amol Muzumdar, India’s leading run-scorer in local cricket, has been given a big responsibility. The Mumbai Cricket Association’s (MCA) Cricket Reforms Committee has selected Muzumdar as the head coach of Mumbai’s senior men’s team. A committee comprising Jatin Paranjape, Nilesh Kulkarni, and Vinod Kambli has made the selection. This will be the selection for the 2021-22 season.

Former India spinner Sairaj Bahutule and former coach Sulakshan Kulkarni were also in the running for the Mumbai cricket team’s coaching job.

Under Amol’s leadership, Mumbai has won the Ranji Trophy. Amol has good experience as he is the batting coach of the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League. Amol was appointed as batting coach for India Under-23 cricket team and India Under- 19 cricket team. Mazumdar was also appointed as batting consultant for the Netherlands cricket team in December 2013.

Earlier, Amit Paganis was selected as the coach of the Mumbai team for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, followed by former India spinner Ramesh Powar for the Vijay Hazare Trophy. But now Ramesh Powar is the head coach of the Indian women’s cricket team which will leave for England Tour on 2nd June.

Amol has scored 11,167 runs in 171 first-class matches at an average of 48.13 with 30 centuries and 60 fifties. In List A cricket, he has scored 3286 runs in 113 matches.
