Following the departure of coach WV Raman to Bengal, Tamil Nadu has decided to appoint three specialist coaches for the senior side, instead of one head coach. The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association announced in its executive committee meeting held in Chennai on Tuesday that PC Prakash will be the batting coach, J Gokulakrishnan the bowling coach, while TS Mohan will look after the fielding.
Prakash was picked after guiding the State's Under-16 team to the final of the Vijay Merchant Trophy. Gokulakrishnan, the former Tamil Nadu medium-pacer, assisted Raman last season. RI Palani will continue as the team's cricket manager.
Raman took up the offer to coach Bengal from this season, after spending four years with his native Tamil Nadu. Raman helped the side young side rebuild after several defections to the ICL.
