Former cricketer Amol Muzumdar has been named as coach of the Mumbai cricket team for the upcoming 2021-22 domestic season. The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA)’s Cricket Improvement Committee consisting of Jatin Paranjape (Chairman), Nilesh Kulkarni and Vinod Kambli appointed Muzumdar as the coach.

The MCA had sought applications in the second week of May for the post of coach of the Mumbai senior team and laid down eligibility criteria, which included that the applicant should have played 50-class matches.

May 21 was the last date to apply and Sulakshan Kulkarni, Amol Muzumdar, and Sairaj Bahutule were among the prominent names who had applied for the post.
