"Coaching MP will be a different challenge" - Pandit

A year after he coached Vidarbha to Ranji Trophy victory, Chandrakant Pandit, domestic cricket's most successful coach, has decided to move to MP in the same capacity.

Pandit was Vidarbha's coach for the past three seasons. While they won the Ranji Trophy and Irani Cup back-to-back in the 2017-18 & 2018-19 seasons) under him, the Nagpur-based team finished seventh last season.

MP, who failed to reach the knockouts of the Ranji Trophy last season (they finished 16th), previously had three coaches simultaneously -- Harvinder Singh Sodhi, Devendra Bundela and Abbas Ali.

"Vidarbha played very well. I've passed on whatever I could to them, and hopefully, the lessons will stay with them. Coaching MP will be a different challenge," Pandit said.

He has also coached Mumbai, Maharashtra, and Kerala in the past. Incidentally, Pandit has captained and coached MP in the past too.
