Bayliss named Punjab Kings' head coach

The 59-year-old will replace Anil Kumble after the former India cricketer's contract was not renewed by the franchise

Punjab Kings have named Trevor Bayliss as their head coach for the next season of the Indian Premier League, the franchise announced on Friday (September 16). 

The 59-year-old will replace Anil Kumble after the former India cricketer's contract was not renewed by Punjab following a poor string of performances by the side under his guidance. Under Kumble, they failed to progress to the IPL play-offs three consecutive times.

"I'm honoured to be given the head coach's role with the Punjab Kings. A foundation franchise with an appetite for success. I look forward to working with a talented squad of players determined to compete for silverware," Bayliss said in a statement issued by the franchise.

Bayliss will bring in his experience of winning the 2019 50-over World Cup with England, two IPL titles with Kolkata Knight Riders in 2012 and 2014, besides a BBL title with the Sydney Sixers.

Bayliss was also the head coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2020 and 2021 IPL seasons.
