Atul Bedade, former India batsman and Baroda women’s team head coach, has been suspended by Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) with quick impact after a couple of gamers complained about Bedade’s behaviour, construed to fall below sexual harassment.
The gamers had complained concerning the remarks handed by Bedade contained in the dressing room. The suspension letter, signed by BCA honorary secretary Ajit Lele and Senior Manager Human Resources Priyanka Verma, learn: “The letter is to substantiate you that you’re hereby suspended from Baroda Cricket Association with quick impact until additional inquiry. As outlined in our assembly on March 20, 2020 that we’ve got recorded incidents from complainants concerned with women’s cricket that come below the policy of sexual harassment and public shaming.
“This includes: Personal comments on physical to personal menstruation. Comments that discourage the morale of team members. Angry outbursts unbecoming of a women’s team coach and using unparliamentary language that is not accepted of a person in-charge. Behaviour oblivious of gender sensitivity,” the letter learn.
Bedade was instructed that BCA will likely be in contact in case they need him to be depose earlier than the probe committee. Incidentally, Bedade had himself requested BCA for the women’s team coach job final yr and he was appointed Baroda women’s team coach final season. The left-handed batsman had represented the Indian at some point team in 13 video games within the ‘90s. He was half of the help workers with Mumbai Indians in IPL in 2008 and has been concerned with teaching and choice with BCA. Based on the verbal and written complaints from the ladies gamers, BCA suspended Bedade with quick impact.
