As of now, she is currently associated with the Bengal women's team as a mentor. Raman, the former India men's batter, was the head coach of the Indian women's team from December 2018 to March 2021 and was seen commentating on the side's five-match home T20Is against Australia in December last year. "W.V. did a great job with the Indian team and that's why we have offered him the head coach role job," Ganguly, a former India captain and BCCI President, was quoted as saying in the report.
