Anju set to coach Baroda

Bangladesh women's team head coach Anju Jain has said that she will be coaching Baroda Cricket Association's (BCA) women's senior team.

She joined as the head coach of Bangladesh women's team in 2018 and helped the team beat India in Asia Cup finals. Bangladesh endured a barren run at the recently-concluded T20 World Cup, post which her contract with the BCB ended.

"I will be joining the Baroda women's team as soon as I get guidelines from the BCA," Jain was qouted as saying TOI.

"Her contact with us was up to March. We were considering the performance of the World Cup. She must have felt that chances are slim of extending her contract and so she decided to leave. She did not inform us anything about it. As the contract ended she was there was nothing like resigning from the post or things like that," the head of BCB women's wing, Nadel Chowdhury, was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

Jain, a wicketkeeper, played for India for 12 years and had also captained the squad during Women's Cricket World Cup in 2000. She retired in 2005 and went on to become the selector for Indian women's team before taking up coaching.
