The Cricket Association of Pondicherry (CAP) has appointed former Australian express pacer Shaun Tait as the bowling coach of the Puducherry team. Shaun Tait’s presence in the upcoming season is going to help the budding and exciting young pace bowlers in the team.
CAP sources have confirmed this latest development to the Times of India and are excited to welcome Shaun Tait to their coaching team. The sources said:
“Tait has expressed his willingness to join the Puducherry team later this month. However, if he gets a call from Afghanistan he may join them and stay with the team before rejoining Puducherry for his duties. Tait is also expected to mentor the pace bowlers at the CAP academy in Puducherry.”
