The Puducherry Cricket Association (CAP) has appointed former Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait as the bowling coach of the Puducherry cricket team. CAP sources said Tait will join the coaching team, which includes head coach Dishant Yagnik and manager and ‘strength and conditioning’ coach Kalpendra Jha.
The former Australian player was recently appointed as the bowling coach of the Afghanistan team for five months. But the uncertainty over the Taliban coming to power in Afghanistan has cast doubt on his appointment. According to sources, Tait may join the Puducherry team later this month.
