Australian Troy Cooley has been roped in as the Indian women cricket team’s bowling coach ahead of the tri-series and the T20 World Cup to be held here. The 57-year-old Tasmanian has served as the fast bowling coach at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru since 2021 and was recently with the victorious India A team that toured Bangladesh.

“Yes, he’s (Cooley) with us. We’ve already worked with him at the NCA and almost every bowler knows him well. He’s already with the team and we are working with him,” skipper Harmanpreet Kaur said on Wednesday ahead of the tri-series opener against hosts South Africa.

India struggled with their pace bowling in the home series against Australia as they conceded 170-plus in all five of the games and lost 1-4.
