Putting the head coaches of the ten IPL 2023 clubs in order

In addition to the players, the support staff of a few different teams has also experienced considerable changes in preparation for the next season of the Indian Premier League (2023). The coaching staff of the Punjab Kings (PBKS) has undergone significant change. Trevor Bayliss, Brad Haddin, Wasim Jaffer, and Charl Langeveldt have taken over the roles previously held by Anil Kumble as head coach, Jonty Rhodes as an assistant coach, Julian Wood as batting coach, and Damien Wright as bowling coach.

Mark Boucher has been hired on as the new head coach for the Mumbai Indians (MI). The position of global head of performance has been elevated to Mahela Jayawardene, who was previously the head coach, and Zaheer Khan, who was previously the director of cricket operations, has been elevated to the position of global head of cricket development. In addition, Kieron Pollard took over for Robin Singh as the team’s batting coach. Dwayne Bravo has taken up the role of bowling coach of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), succeeding L Balaji. Chandrakant Pandit has taken over as captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in lieu of Brendon McCullum, who has taken the position of England Test coach.

Chennai Super Kings

Stephen Fleming, the team’s head coach, and Michael Hussey, the team’s assistant coach, form a close-knit support staff for CSK (batting coach). Since the arrival of Fleming and MS Dhoni, Chennai have developed into one of the most successful teams in the IPL. After enjoying a lot of success as a hitter, Hussey has put in a lot of effort as a hitting instructor and has a lot of expertise to pass on to his students. It would be intriguing to see how Bravo performs in his new role as bowling coach. The fielding coach was once known as Rajiv Kumar. He became well-known when Chennai Super Kings mishandled a number of catches in the IPL 2022 tournament.

Delhi Capitals

Ricky Ponting, a cricketing icon, now serves as the head coach for DC. Despite the fact that the club has not yet been victorious in the IPL, his presence has undeniably been of great benefit to the squad. One of the most well-known and respected Indian coaches is Pravin Amre, who serves as an assistant coach. New assistant coaches for DC are Ajit Agarkar and Shane Watson, who both just joined the organisation. James Hopes, a former all-rounder for Australia, is the team’s fast bowling coach. Biju George, the team’s fielding coach, has previously been a member of the Indian women’s squad, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), and Kolkata Knight Riders. Hopes is the team’s head coach overall.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Chandrakant Pandit is a fantastic candidate to take over for KKR as the team’s head coach after McCullum’s departure. Pandit is one of the most recognised Indian coaches, and he has been a member of six winning teams in the Ranji Trophy competition. His most recent victory came in 2022, when he led Madhya Pradesh to their first-ever championship. Bharat Arun, who accomplished a lot with India, is now serving as their bowling coach. KKR’s coaching staff includes David Hussey as a mentor, Ryan ten Doeschate as the fielding coach, James Foster as an assistant coach, and Abhishek Nayar as an assistant coach.

Gujarat Titans

In their first season, GT made a really positive impression. While Ashish Nehra has shown to be a straightforward head coach, Gary Kirsten, who also serves as a batting coach and mentor, has solid credentials. Both Ashish Kapoor, a former off-spinner, and Mithun Manhas, a former batsman for Delhi, are now working as assistant coaches. Vikram Solanki, a former batsman for England, now serves as the director of cricket.

Andy Flower, a Zimbabwean icon, is serving as the head coach for the Lucknow SuperGiants LSG, who also made their debut in the Indian Premier League in 2022. He brings a wealth of expertise to the position, while India’s Gautam Gambhir, an opener who has won the World Cup twice, serves as the team’s global mentor. The Golden Tigers have hired Andy Bichel as their bowling coach, and former India keeper Vijay Dahiya as their assistant coach. Their fielding coach, Richard Halsall, has previously worked with both the England cricket team and with Bangladesh. He has also worked with Sussex.

Mumbai Indians

Mark Boucher, a former keeper and batter for South Africa, has been selected to serve as the next head coach of MI. From December 2019 till the start of the T20 World Cup in Australia, Boucher served as the coach of the Proteas squad. In spite of South Africa’s continued inability to break their winning streak in ICC competitions, he had a pretty good tenure overall. Shane Bond, a former New Zealand sprinter, has been a member of the Australia team for a few seasons now and has been doing well in his role. In the beginning of his coaching career, Pollard will be working with MI as a hitting coach, while former Auckland hitter James Pamment will continue his role as the team’s fielding coach.

Kumar Sangakkara, a cricketing great, now serves as the director of cricket and head coach for the Rajasthan Royals RR. The year before, he led the franchise for the first time since 2008 to the final of the Indian Premier League. The appointment of Lasith Malinga to the franchise as a fast bowling coach has been a very exciting development. Dishant Yagnik is the fielding coach, while Trevor Penney serves as the assistant coach for the team.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Since the beginning of the Indian Premier League, Director of Cricket Operations Mike Hesson has been the public face of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) coaching staff, with varying degrees of success.

Sanjay Bangar, a former all-rounder for India, now serves as their head coach, while Adam Griffith is in charge of their bowling. The Australian and Bangladesh cricket teams have both used Sridharan Sriram’s services as a consultant in addition to his role as coach of the batting and spin bowling units.

Trevor Bayliss is the team’s head coach, and his name is Punjab Kings PBKS. He is most well-known for leading England to victory in the One-Day International World Cup in 2019. In 2012 and 2014, he led KKR to victory in the Indian Premier League as the team’s head coach. On the other hand, Bayliss did not have a very successful run with Sunrisers Hyderabad most recently. PBKS will have high hopes that he can change the course of events for their squad. Haddin, Jaffer, and Langeveldt were brought on board to serve in the respective roles of assistant coach, batting coach, and bowling coach.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH’s performance in the IPL 2022 was abysmal. They have chosen Brian Lara to lead the coaching staff going forward. Although he is a legend, he does not have a lot of experience teaching; he just started working with SRH in 2022 as a batting coach and strategic adviser. Their fast bowling coach is the legendary Protas bowler Dale Steyn, while their spin bowling coach and strategy coach is the legendary Sri Lankan bowler Muttiah Muralitharan. Hemang Badani, a former hitter for the Indians, is now the fielding coach and scout for the team. SRH have chosen to hire notable coaches despite having less experience in the field.
