Former India opener Das is India women’s team batting coach

Former India opener Shiv Sunder Das has been appointed the batting coach of the Indian women’s team for the tour of England.

Das had played 23 Tests between 2000 and ’02, and scored 1326 runs, including two hundreds and nine half-centuries. He finished with an average of 34.89.

“It will be a good experience and I am looking forward to it,” said the 43-year-old former Odisha skipper.

Das has sharpened his skills as a batting coach at the National Cricket Academy under Rahul Dravid’s guidance, believes that the stint would help him while trying to solve the technical problems of the batters.

“I have been part of the NCA for the last 4–5 years and have been batting coach for the past couple of years. I would like to thank Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly for giving me this opportunity,” said Das, who played most of his cricket under the BCCI president’s captaincy.

“I don’t think there is a lot of difference and at the end of the day, you impart your knowledge and work with the players. You contribute to their success and be ready to solve their cricketing issues when they need you. My responsibility is to make them well prepared and match-ready,” said Das, who was part of the Indian team that toured England under Ganguly in 2002 and scored 250 in a tour game.

“That was my highest score in England on that tour,” he recalled.

Furthermore, Das believes that his experience of having played league cricket in England will prove to be helpful when he guides the players.

“It will help that I have played a lot of cricket in England, including international cricket and league cricket. I know the conditions and I will share my experiences with the players.

“A few of them have toured England multiple times and have quite a bit of experience. Whatever time we have, we will see how many training sessions we get, and make sure we use them properly,” he said.
