Mumbai cricket coach Pravin Amre’s year-long tenure is coming to an end in three days but there is suspense over his continuation in the post.
While a senior official of Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) said Amre did not want an extension of his contract, the former cricketer said the ball was in MCA’s court.
“My tenure is coming to an end on March 31. Now it’s upto them (MCA) to decide (whether to retain him as coach),” said Amre.
However, MCA Joint secretary Nitin Dalal said Amre had given indication he did not want to continue as coach.
“His tenure is till March 31 and he does not want to continue. Our CIC (Cricket Improvement Committee headed by Madhav Apte) will decide the future coach of all age groups teams,” said Dalal.
Under Amre (46), the team reached the semi-final of the Ranji Trophy before losing to eventual champions Karnataka.
Mumbai have now made it to the knock out rounds of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 championship to be held in Cuttack from April 1-7 and Amre won’t accompany the team as coach, Dalal said. — PTI
