Sameer Dighe has resigned as Mumbai coach due to personal reasons. The Mumbai Cricket Association’s Cricket Improvement Committee (CIC) headed by former India fast bowler Ajit Agarkar is likely to convene soon to discuss potential replacements ahead of the new season in September.

Dighe, a former India wicketkeeper, was appointed on a one-year deal in 2017 as successor to Chandrakant Pandit, who led Mumbai to two successive Ranji Trophy finals. They won their last championship in February 2016.

Mumbai endured a difficult 2017-18 domestic season, where they were were beaten in the quarterfinal of both the Ranji Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy, by Karnataka and Maharashtra respectively, while losing three of their four matches in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20s.

BCCI to continue with neutral curators for 2018-19 season

Encouraged by the positive feedback during the 2017-18 season, the BCCI is set to continue with neutral curators for the upcoming Ranji Trophy. This matter, and others, was discussed during the two-day Curators’ conclave in Mumbai last week.

After trialling neutral venues in 2016-17, the BCCI reverted to the traditional ‘home and away’ concept last year with neutral curators to ensure state associations didn’t doctor pitches to suit their team’s strengths.

The grounds and pitches committee is also said to have been satisfied with the local curators’ level of preparedness towards maintaining surfaces during the course of the recently-concluded IPL season.

The Cricket Association of Bengal won the Best Ground award in 2018. The Eden Gardens hosted nine IPL matches, including two playoffs that were originally slated for Pune.
