On Wednesday, J Arun Kumar has been finalised for the coach of men’s national cricket team by US cricket. It’s a two year deal for J Arun Kumar.
J Arun Kumar is a 45 years old. He replaces interim coach James Pamment, who was appointed in October 2019 after USA Cricket chose not to renew contracts of their support staff in the likes of former India players Kiran More, Sunil Joshi and Pravin Amre along with David Saker, the former Australia bowling coach. Arun Kumar is a former Karnataka captain which is working for the Indian Domestic Circuit now.
USA Cricket CEO Ian Higgins said in a statement, “I’m delighted to say that we have subsequently reached an agreement with ‘Jak’ that he will take up the role and be permanently based in the United States as and when his working visa has been obtained.”
“Of course, the COVID-19 crisis has now presented some challenges around the scope of the role in the short/medium term, but we look forward to completing all of the arrangements and to welcoming him more formally in due course,” he added.
Richard Done joined USA Cricket’s full-time Cricket as an Operations Director. Richard comes to USA Cricket after more than 15 years in a post with the ICC, where he served as its High-Performance Manager. Jamie Lloyd has also joined USA Cricket as its first-ever Development Manager. He has been around the USA cricket community since 2012. He has focused to play roles with CricHQ, Dream XI and recently as the USA Men’s Performance and Video Analyst.
