Mumbai batsman Wasim Jaffer is unhappy with the Mumbai Cricket Association managing committee’s decision to sack Sulakshan Kulkarni.
“It was harsh to see the coach sacked despite Mumbai making the knockout stages of the Ranji Trophy. It doesn’t look nice because we did not wait for one-dayers or T20s to finish,” said Jaffer on Friday.
Jaffer, who led the team for a few games this season, denied reports of there being a communication gap between the coach and captain. “The captain is always the boss because he handles the players and he is the decision maker. He can take everybody’s advice but at the end of the day, it is the captain who is to deliver. You can say that the captain may not have listened to the coach’s advice,” he said.
When asked whether he had any problems with Kulkarni, he said: “I did not have a problem.’’
