Since more than the captain, its the coach who backs a player for a specific role in the side.
In past, we’ve seen Daniel Vettori and Virat Kohli share a great bond in the RCB camp. Since Virat played under Daniel for a brief period before taking over as RCB’s full-time captain. Further, we witnessed Vettori coach the Virat Kohli led RCB side for a couple of seasons.
Then there have been the duos of MS Dhoni-Stephen Fleming for CSK and Rohit Sharma-Mahela Jayawardene for MI who are active even now for their franchises.
But there are also some coaches who have coached multiple IPL teams in the past which is why today we look at current IPL coaches who have coached different franchises in the past.
