“Unveiling the Mystery: Meet the Surprising Choice for Team India’s Coach on Ireland Tour Instead of VVS Laxman or Rahul Dravid!”

Sitanshu Kotak: Leading Indian Team in 3 T20 Match Series Against Ireland

The upcoming cricket series between India and Ireland is generating buzz, with a series of changes in the lineup and coaching staff. Jasprit Bumrah will lead Team India in the 3 T20 matches against Ireland, adding an air of anticipation to the games.

Intriguingly, instead of the anticipated VVS Laxman, Sitanshu Kotak has been chosen as the coach for this Ireland tour. This decision has prompted curiosity among cricket enthusiasts.

The Choice: Sitanshu Kotak Over VVS Laxman

Why did Sitanshu Kotak secure the coaching responsibility for the Ireland tour, sidelining VVS Laxman? The reason lies in VVS Laxman’s involvement in the Emerging Camp at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. This camp is aimed at evaluating the skills of young players. Meanwhile, the India-Ireland series is scheduled to kick off on August 18th.

Remarkably, the regular coaching staff, including Rahul Dravid, will not accompany the team during this tour. This absence is not a cause for concern, as Rahul Dravid will return to coach Team India for the Asia Cup.

Sitanshu Kotak, the chosen coach for the Ireland tour, commands attention. He holds the position of head coach for India-A team and also serves as the batting coach at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. Adding to the coaching ensemble, Sairaj Bahutule will take on the role of bowling coach for the Indian team during this Ireland tour. The team, guided by captain Jasprit Bumrah, is set to depart for Dublin with Sitanshu Kotak and Sairaj Bahutule on Tuesday.
