Wasim Jaffer steps down as Uttarakhand coach, blames ‘interference in team selection’ for decision


“He kept insisting on picking his own team which is not right as selectors are there,” counters association secretary

Wasim Jaffer, the former India opening batsman and domestic giant, has resigned as Uttarakhand’s head coach citing “interference in team selection” days before they were to compete in the Vijay Hazare Trophy one-day tournament, starting February 20. His resignation has been accepted.

“I feel really sad for the players as I genuinely think that they have lots of potential and can learn so much from me but are denied this opportunity because of so much interference and bias of selectors and secretary in the selection matters for non-deserving players,” Jaffer wrote in an e-mail to the Cricket Association of Uttarakhand (CAU).
