The most expensive franchise in the Women’s Premier League owned by Adani Sportsline Pvt Ltd which is Gujarat Giants has revealed their star-studded coaches lineup to pick the best available 15 to 18-member squads in the WPL auction event along with helping the franchise win the inaugural edition of WPL. Gujarat also has an extensive plan to groom young women cricketers in the Ahmedabad region to provide a consistent flow of young women cricketers who can represent the country at the highest level. 

Complete Coaches List of Gujarat Giants

Last week, Gujarat Giants announced to rope in World’s best woman cricketer Mithali Raj as team mentor & advisor to groom young talent in the home state of Gujarat along with helping the women cricketers during the inaugural edition of Women’s Premier League to win the title. The complete coaches list for Gujararat Giants in WPL is as follows.

  • Mithali Raj (Team Mentor)
  • Rachael Haynes (Head Coach)
  • Nooshin Al Khadeer (Bowling Coach)
  • Tushar Arothe (Batting Coach)
  • Gavan Twining (Fielding Coach)

Along with Mithali, Rachael Haynes has been appointed as the head coach who retired from all forms of cricket late last year and is among the most respected woman cricketer in the circuit with a glittering career at the domestic and international level and she has been in a team which has won 6 world titles for Australia. Rachael has represented Australia in 84 T20Is with 850 runs at a strike rate of 117.72. 

Nooshin Al Khadeer has been roped in as a bowling coach who already helped win 2 mega titles for his franchises as Supernovas had won the Women’s T20 Challenge in 2022 while the U19 Indian Women’s team also created history last week under the coaching guidance of Al Khadeer. 

As batting coach, Tushar Arothe has joined the Gujarat Giants franchise who also has the experience coaching Indian Women’s national team for one year during 2017-18. He had to leave the coaching job due to differences between some of the players related to his coaching strategies so we will have to see how he adapts to the franchise league circuit with experienced personnel like Mithali, Rachael & Nooshin. 

Gavan as fielding coach is also not a rookie and has been involved in the Australian domestic setup as a head coach for New South Wales women’s side so he will definitely give his valuable input to head coach Rachael Haynes. 

Gujarat WPL Auction Strategy

Experienced personnel like Rachael & Mithali will be available at the WPL auction event which is scheduled to be held in a week’s time in Mumbai. Team Gujarat will surely love to rope in experienced and young cricketers from India along with Australia to set up a strong-looking lineup for the inaugural season. They can rope in seven overseas players including one player from the associate nation while the remaining have to be filled in from exciting Indian young women talent available in the circuit. A total auction of 12 Cr INR is available to finalize a team squad of 15 to 18 players.
