Team India's physiotherapist Nitin Patel has resigned from his post after serving the team for a long time. And with him quitting, the BCCI not only has to find a new head coach, but also a new physiotherapist. 

According to a report published in ESPNcricinfo, it is understood that he submitted his resignation during the Indian Premier League which concluded on Sunday. He has cited that he would like to spend more time at home now after serving the team for almost 8 years. He was appointed midway during the 2007 tour of the United Kingdom where India won a Test series in England after 21 years.

He has been with the Indian side primarily during the limited overs assignments over the last couple of years and also was instrumental in looking after the players (contracted by the BCCI) who were on their road to recovery at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. He was also the one who suggested moving the NCA to the Sri Ramachandra Medical College campus in Chennai last year.
