Baroda Cricket Association announced that former India cricketer Sunetra Paranjpe has been appointed as the head coach of the senior team last Thursday (February 5).

Sane, on the other hand, is a BCCI level B coach, and she has ten years of coaching experience in the domestic circuit.
The appointment must come as a relief to the Baroda players and the team. Earlier, former cricketer, Anju Jain was appointed as the coach, but due to the fall out between her and the association, there was no progress with the appointment.
