On Monday night, a “disappointed” Arothe, who had coached India during that memorable campaign last July, put in his papers. A rather acrimonious fallout with senior players in the team had taken its his toll on him.
“There’s no hard feelings between the players and myself and any other support staff. I’m quitting due to personal reasons. I wish the girls well in the forthcoming series (three ODIs and five T20Is in Sri Lanka) and in the World Cup and make India proud,” Arothe told ToI from Bangalore. In an exclusive interview, he then bared his heart on what triggered his ouster.

“You can’t allow practice methods to be dictated by the girls. If these girls want to achieve something, they need to come out of their comfort zone. They don’t want to do that. The BCCI should not entertain such requests from cricketers (to change the coach),” laments Arothe.
