Nehra, Kirsten join RCB coaching staff

January 4, 2018

India’s 2011 World Cup-winning coach Gary Kirsten and recently retired pacer Ashish Nehra have been added to the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s coaching staff for the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League beginning in April. Kirsten and Nehra will come on-board as batting and bowling coach, respectively.

Additionally, Kirsten and Nehra will also play the role of mentors for the team during the league. Meanwhile, Royal Challengers have retained former New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori as their head coach.  This will be Kirsten’s second stint in the IPL.

Earlier, the former South African opener had signed a three-year contract with Delhi Daredevils in 2014, but the franchise removed him in 2015, following poor outputs in two seasons, where the team finished last and second-last.

The 50-year-old is currently the head coach of the Big Bash League franchise Hobart Hurricanes. On the other hand, Nehra will play a coach for the first time in any format.

The IPL auctions for the season are slated for Jan. 27 and 28.
