Former India opener Wasim Jaffer has been appointed as the head coach of the Uttarakhand cricket team for the next home season. He also had a strong performance in domestic cricket and now he will play the responsibility of head coach of Uttarakhand cricket team. Jaffer's contract is currently for one year. Let us tell you that he retired from cricket in March this year after playing cricket for two decades.
Wasim Jaffer has previously represented Mumbai and then Vidarbha at home or in tournaments. This is the first time he has been associated with a team as a head coach. After being given the responsibility of the coach, Wasim Jaffar said that for the first time I am becoming the head coach of a team. It is very challenging and something new for me, which is starting soon after my career is over. I am ready for it.
He said that this is a new team and they have done well. They have played in the quarter-finals (2018-19) season Ranji Trophy against Vidarbha. But they have again gone back to Group D (Plate Group), so it is going to be a big challenge. I am happy that I am starting from the bottom and it would be a good experience for me.
Wasim Jaffer said that I loved to advise and share my experience with youngsters from Mumbai and Vidarbha team and now I will do the same for Uttarakhand. The 42-year-old former player, who has played 31 Tests for India, said, "I have guided young players in my last five-six-year career." This is something that I enjoy. I am very happy to help the youth and see them becoming better players.
