The Bermuda Cricket Board [BCB] has reportedly appointed Indian cricket coach Niraj Odedra as the national team’s head coach.

This is according to reports from the Indian media, which said, “Bermuda Cricket Board [BCB] has roped in Saurashtra’s Niraj Odedra as the national team’s head coach on a short-term basis with an eye on qualification for the T20 World Cup in 2024 in the West Indies and the United States.

“Odedra has been part of Saurashtra’s coaching staff since 2015 and was the team’s head coach in the current season. Alongside former India A and current NCA coach Sitanshu Kotak, Odedra contributed immensely to the rise of Saurashtra as a formidable red-ball outfit over the past decade, culminating in the team’s maiden Ranji Trophy triumph in 2020.”

The Times of India report, “Odedra’s contract with BCB runs from July 1 to September 15 but there is a possibility that he might return to the British overseas territory for a longer stint.

“Soon after landing in Bermuda, he will start working with a group of 35-40 players to prepare for the ICC T20 World Cup qualifying event next year. The team is ranked 34th in the latest ICC T20 rankings.”

Bernews asked the BCB for comment and will update if able.
