Former Indian coach and test skipper Anil Kumble has been appointed as the head coach of Kings XI Punjab side for the upcoming season.
Kumble was previously associated with the Mumbai Indians’ side in the past as a mentor. He alongside Sachin Tendulkar, Robin Singh, and Jonty Rhodes played a crucial role in their victorious run in the past.
The franchise recently parted ways with Mike Hesson, who was with the side for only one season. There is a buzz that the management is in talks with George Bailey to function as the batting coach for the side. It is to be noted that Bailey’s captaincy was one of the reasons behind their successful stint in 2014.
Further developments from the news are still expected to be out soon.
Hunt for a maiden title
The Kings XI Punjab franchise hasn’t been at their best over the years. Inconsistency has been one of the problems on the side. Will Kumble address the problem? Can the side come out all guns blazing this season? We will have to wait and see.
