Uganda Cricket Association (UCA) will begin an immediate search for a new coach for the senior women’s national team after parting ways with Suraj Karavadra. 
UCA announced on Tuesday that they had ended their relationship with the UK-born coach of Indian descent after an eight-month relationship. 
“UCA and Victoria Pearls Head Coach Suraj Karavadra have reached a decision to part ways by mutual consent,” read part of a statement by CEO Martin Ondeko. 
Karavadra took over the role in April and despite missing the Kwibuka Peace T20 Cup in Rwanda due to Covid-19 cases in June, he was in charge of the Victoria Pearls at the ICC Twenty20 World Cup Africa Qualifiers in Botswana in September. 
“An interim coach for the Victoria Pearls will be announced in due time,” added Ondeko.
