Ex-India women’s cricket coach Tushar Arothe held in IPL betting case
Gujurat: Former India women’s cricket coach Tushar Arothe has been arrested in Vadodara on Tuesday in connection with betting in the Indian Premier League.
Acting on a tip-off about the betting activities at the Cafe Stock Exchange in Alkapuri, the cops conducted a raid and found a total of 19 persons including Arothe and his two partners Hemang Patel and Nishchal Mitha.
The accused persons were arrested and later released on bail but their phones and vehicles have been seized.
Tushar Arothe was the coach when Mithali Raj-led Indian team reached the World Cup final in England in 2017.
However, he had to step down after the BCCI received complaints from senior players, more specifically T20 skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, about his training methods.
