Former Mumbai captain Amol Mazumdar has been appointed as the head coach of the Mumbai senior team for the upcoming domestic season. He replaced Ramesh Powar, who is now the head coach of the India women's cricket team.
Ex-India cricketer Wasim Jaffer was among the candidates who applied for the role. He congratulated Mazumdar for getting selected for the job and also posted a hilarious meme when asked to post a congratulatory meme.
"Many congratulations to my good friend @amolmuzumdar11 for becoming Mumbai head coach. I'm sure Mumbai cricket will reach greater heights with your guidance," Jaffer tweeted.
Mazumdar thanked him in reply and wrote that he expected a meme from Jaffer in his post. He replied, "Thanks @WasimJaffer14. You know it, not an inch would be given on the ground. BTW I was expecting a meme."
Jaffer posted an honest meme in response, after being not picked for the role which cracked up his followers.
Apart from Jaffer and Mazumdar, the Cricket Improvement Committee (CIC) of the MCA comprising Jatin Paranjape (chairman), Nilesh Kulkarni, and Vinod Kambli also interviewed Balwinder Singh Sandhu, Sairaj Bahutule, Sulakshan Kulkarni, Pradeep Sunderram, Nandan Phadnis, Umesh Patwal, and Vinod Raghvan.
