In addition to this, the franchise also named Tushar Arothe as the team’s batting coach and Nooshin Al Khadeer, a former India spinner, as the bowling coach.

The former Australian cricketer Rachael Haynes has won six world championships as a member of the national women’s team. Haynes was vice-captain of Australia from 2017 to 2022. She also captains the Sydney Thunder in the WBBL and played for New South Wales in the Women’s National Cricket League.

These coaches join the staff that is headed by Mithali Raj, a women’s cricket legend, who is the team’s mentor.

“The likes of Rachael Haynes, Nooshin Al Khadeer, Tushar Arothe, and Gavan Twining will certainly take the performance of the team notches up. Not only have they carved a niche for themselves in their roles, but their stories of resilience will be an inspiration for the team.

Their combined strengths will enable Gujarat Giants to give their best performance on the ground at the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League, which will inspire several aspiring women athletes,” said Raj.

On the other hand, Nooshin Al Khadeer is the head coach of India Under 19 women’s team that won the World Cup last week.

“The Women’s Premier League is such an exciting addition to the cricket landscape. The opportunity to be involved in the inaugural season with the Adani Sportline-owned Gujarat Giants and working with the brilliant Mithali Raj is something I’m really looking forward to.

We have formed a wonderful coaching team, with Nooshin Al Khadeer, Tushar Arothe and Gavan Twining, who will be bringing on board their rich experience which will help the team to play an exciting brand of cricket which our fans will enjoy watching,” said Haynes.

Satyam Trivedi, Head, Adani Sportsline, said, “The Women’s Premier League will be a game-changer and we are thrilled to have a phenomenal team of coaches for Gujarat Giants. Trailblazers such as Mithali Raj, Rachael Haynes, and Nooshin’s remarkable journey as athletes will surely set the bar high for every team member. We wish the team nothing but tremendous success.”
