Anjum Chopra inducted in management team of SA women`s cricket
Johannesburg: Former India women`s cricket captain Anjum Chopra has been recruited in the management team for the South African women`s side as technical advisor ahead of the upcoming ICC Women`s World Cup in India, CSA has announced.
Chopra will help the team in the areas of mental training and computer-aided analysis, and her first assignment will be the upcoming five-match ODI series in the West Indies.
"The availability of Anjum Chopra to work within the space of South African women`s cricket should close the gap in the international experience between South Africa and the rest of the top women cricketing nations," Max Jordaan, CSA`s manager of women`s and senior cricket, said.
"The recent performances of the Proteas at the ICC Women T20 highlighted this shortcoming. We believe that the wealth of on-field cricket experience, leadership and business acumen elevates Anjum as the ideal person to lead our team into the semi-finals at the ICC Women`s Cricket World Cup in India," he added.
Chopra has scored 2856 runs at an average of 31.38 in 127 ODIs while representing India for 17 long years. She was the first woman cricketer to appear in 100 ODIs.
