The next day after the Mumbai finished at the bottom of the group stage, Amit Pagnis resigned from the post of head coach of Mumbai. It was the season-opening tournament- Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Amit Pagnis wrote in an email to the Mumbai Cricket Association office bearers that due to the bad team performance in the current tournament he would like to step down from his current position of Head Coach.

He took the full responsibility for the Team’s bad performance and he highlighted the reason for this poor performance. According to him the lack of preparation in between the pandemic was the biggest reason that the team didn’t perform well as the players did not got any time at all to prepare and practice as a team together.

Now it will be exciting to see if the Mumbai Cricket Association council accepts his departure from the position of the Head coach or convinces him to coach the team for the Vijay Hazare Trophy which may start from 17th Feb.
