Bhubaneswar, July 24 -- Former India opener Wasim Jaffer has joined as the chief coach of Odisha cricket team. Earlier last week, the Cricket Advisory Committee of Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) had appointed Jaffer as the chief coach of Odisha Cricket Association for the seasons 2021-22 & 2022-23.

He was accorded a warm welcome by OCA upon his arrival at the Biju Patnaik International Airport in Bhubaneswar on Friday. While addressing the media persons, Jaffer said it will be a challenge for him to boost the self confidence of the players.

"Odisha players have talent. But their confidence level needs to be boosted. Then, they will be able to perform on a consistent basis," said Jaffer.
