New Delhi: Jul 15, 2013

Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) joint secretary Ravi Jain has been appointed manager of the Indian cricket team for the upcoming tour of Zimbabwe, where it will play five ODIs between July 24 and August 3.

“It is a matter of great honour for Delhi & District Cricket Association that BCCI has appointed its Joint Secretary & Media Manager Mr Ravi Jain as the Manager for the Indian cricket team touring Zimbabwe in July 2013 for ODI Series,” DDCA General Secretary SP Bansal said in a statement.

Jain had earlier toured with the Indian team as a media manager for a limited overs series to Sri Lanka last year when it played five One-day Internationals and a one-off Twenty20 International between July 21 to August 7.

The Zimbabwe tour will be the first time he will be travelling as a team manager. Jain was elected as one of the joint secretaries of the DDCA last December.
