The decision came on the back of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/tushar-arothe" target="_blank">Tushar Arothe</a>'s resignation. Powar will be in charge of the camp that begins in Bengaluru from July 25. BCCI has already invited applications for the full-time coach's job with July 20 being the deadline to apply. "I am happy with the responsibility given and I will try my best to take them ahead," Powar told <em>PTI</em>. Arothe had cited his differences with the seniors of the side as reason for his resignation. <p></p> <p></p>Powar had also applied for the job of head coach of Mumbai, but the post eventually went to Vinayak Samant. According to <em>PTI</em>, Powar was apparently first-choice, but an MCA managing committee resolution ruled the decision in Samanth's favour.
