Kanlwaljit is new coach of Nagaland cricket team

Nagaland will have former Hyderabad cricketer Kanwaljit Singh as its head coach for the upcoming domestic season.

Kanwaljit, an off-spinner, has 20 years experience in the domestic circuit and is familiar with some of the Nagaland cricketers.

“He was our under-23 coach last year. He knows our players. It is essential for a coach to understand the Northeast culture and the boys. He will suit the role,” A. Rahman, joint secretary, Nagaland Cricket Association, told Sportstar on Thursday.

“It is an exciting assignment as they are the babies of First Class cricket. To nurture them is a great responsibility and I am going to enjoy the role,” said Kanwaljit, a veteran of 111 First Class games from the 1980s till early 2000.
