Structured Coaching

Train under the best certified international coaches in the game.

Coach: Mukesh Narula is a former Indian cricketer who is the current coach of the Canadian national side. His domestic career as an all-rounder for Baroda spanned from 1985 to 1996, and included a number of matches for West Zone in the Duleep and Deodhar Trophies. Prior to being appointed coach of Canada in August 2014, Narula had briefly served as Baroda’s senior coach, as well as coaching the Canadian under-19 team.

Having worked in management positions with Indian Petrochemicals Corporation Limited (IPCL) outside of cricket, Narula’s first major coaching role came when he was appointed coach of the Baroda under-19 side for the 2007–08 season. Baroda won the Cooch Behar Trophy (the under-19 equivalent of the Ranji Trophy) for the first time during that season, and he subsequently secured a role as batting consultant with the Mumbai Indians for the 2009 IPL season. Following the resignation of Paras Mhambrey in January 2010, Narula (previously an assistant to Mhambrey) was appointed senior coach of Baroda for the remainder of the 2009–10 season. He was re-appointed senior coach for the 2010–11 season, also coaching West Zone during the same season, and led Baroda to the final against Rajasthan, its best finish since the 2001–02 season. Despite his team’s performance, Narula resigned as coach at the end of the season to take up a position at a Toronto cricket academy. The coach of the Canadian under-19 team at the 2011 Under-19 World Cup Qualifier in Ireland, Narula was appointed head coach of the senior Canadian national team in August 2014. He was the first full-time coach since the resignation of Gus Logie in December 2013.
