The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) has appointed former Bengal seamer and former coach of Mizoram’s under-23 men’s team, Shib Sankar Paul as the head coach of Bengal’s senior women’s team.
Rejoining his appointment, Paul said, “It’s a homecoming for me. I feel honoured to take up this new role. When CAB President Sourav Ganguly and Joint Secretary Avishek Dalmiya asked me, I didn’t think twice to grab this new challenge.”
“There are many talented players in the team and having the likes of Jhulan Goswami only makes the work easier. I will put my best and with the help of all the staff, I hope to deliver the goods. We will work hard in every department. Bengal women’s team have performed well in recent times and I wish to take that form forward,” he added.
CAB’s joint secretary Avishek Dalmiya congratulated Paul on his appointment and said, “Like the men’s team, we are leaving no stone unturned to make sure that the women’s team also gets the best facilities. Paul’s appointment, we feel, is a move in that direction. He brings a treasure of knowledge of playing at the highest level and will help the women’s team that is playing so well to continue their form.”
