Mumbai coach, Amit Pagnis has resigned from his position as coach, after the team's poor performance in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. "Yes, I am stepping down as the Mumbai coach due to our poor performance in the Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. I take responsibility for this. However, it must be kept in mind that lack of preparation was a huge setback to us. We barely got any time to prepare and practice together as a team,"
Pagnis told TOI. "I have always enjoyed working for the MCA and wish Mumbai luck for future tournaments," he added. Mumbai was ousted from the league stage under the captaincy of Surya Kumar Yadav. Pagnis's short tenure has thus lasted just around a month. Led by former India opener Lalchand Rajput, MCA's Cricket Improvement Committee (CIC) will now have to quickly appoint a new coach for the next domestic tournament of the severely curtailed 2020-21 season - which could either be the Ranji Trophy or the Vijay Hazare One-Day Trophy. The Mumbai team had some seasoned players like Shivam Dube, and Aditya Tare in their ranks.
