New Delhi, Former Indian cricketer Arun Lal has resigned as the coach of the Bengal cricket team. He is currently taking a temporary break from cricket and wants to spend some time with his family. Recently, 66-year-old Arun Lal got married to 38-year-old Bulbul Saha, who is 28 years younger than him. Now the couple is preparing to leave for honeymoon.
Arun Lal while talking to the media said that my opinion is completely personal. There is no dispute about this. I only told CaB that I don’t want to continue as Bengal coach. This is a 24/7 job, traveling all day.
Coaching a cricket team is a tough job. I feel like I’m old. That’s why I’m giving up. Arun Lal-Arun Lal tendered his resignation to Cricket Association of Bengal secretary Snehashish Ganguly on Monday. He said that the resignation of the Bengal coach has nothing to do with the performance of the team. The team can win the Ranji Trophy next year. The Bengal team has done well over the years.
I am sure that in the next 2-3 years, the Bengal team will also win the Ranji Trophy. The two teams that played in the finals this time, Mumbai and Madhya Pradesh, did not make it to the semi-finals last year. The Saurashtra team, which was the champion last year, could not enter the semi-finals this time.
Bengal cricket team is much stronger than other teams. The Bengal cricket team was placed in the top-4 of the Ranji Trophy this year. In the 2019-20 season too, Bengal reached the final, but could not win. Along with this, Arun Lal thanked all the well wishers of the Bengal cricket team.
66-year-old Arun Lal married Bulbul Saha, a teacher by profession, in May. This was Arun Lal’s second marriage. His new wife Bulbul Saha is 38 years old. Now after taking a complete break from cricket, Arun Lal wants to go to Turkey with his family.
Along with this, he has also expressed his desire to go to Darjeeling and Kalimpong. Arun Lal scored 729 runs in 16 Tests with the help of 6 half-centuries and 122 runs in 13 ODIs for the Indian cricket team. He has 10421 runs in 156 matches in first class cricket. During this time he scored 30 centuries and 43 half centuries. He has also beaten cancer.SS1MS
