Former India Spinner Ramesh Powar to Train Spinners in Australia
Cricket Australia has invited former India spinner, Ramesh Powar to train their young spinners.
Meanwhile, Ramesh recently quit as spin coach of the Mumbai Cricket Association academy at Bandra Kurla Complex.
The off-spinner will travel to Brisbane in June and will work with the future spinners of Australian cricket. However, CA roped him on the recommendation of former Australian captain, Greg Chappell.
Ramesh was in the Indian team when Chappell was at the helm of Indian Cricket team. That period saw steep fall in Indian cricket, as the senior cricketers didn’t go well with the coach.
Chappell also stripped Sourav Ganguly from his captaincy, and the southpaw lost his place in the team.
The 39-year old Ramesh, meanwhile, thanked Chappell and Troy Cooley for giving him the opportunity. Cooley is the head coach of national performance program of CA.
“It was Greg Chappell who recommended my name to CA. I would like to thank him and Troy Cooley, head coach of national performance program, for giving me this opportunity,” Powar said.
Ramesh is a stocky offspinner who is more than handy with the bat, Ramesh Powar has been a consistent performer in the domestic cricket. He was also crucial to Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy success in the 2002-03 season.
His domestic exploits soon caught the selectors’ notice, and he made to the Indian squad for the tour to Pakistan. Both his off-spin and his batting stood the test in the couple of ODIs he played, but even more impressive was his combative attitude.
He bravely tossed the ball up on batting shirtfronts and didn’t bat an eyelid while striking some lusty blows against the pace of Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Sami.
He played two Tests and 31 ODIs for India claiming six and 34 wickets, respectively. Ramesh also contributed decently with the bat with one fifty to his name.
He also represented Kings XI Punjab and Kochi Tuskers in the Indian Premier League.
