New coaches in the IPL 2023: Although the sixteenth season of the Indian Premier League is more than six months away, clubs have already begun making preparations for IPL 2023. Chandrakant Pandit will take over as the new coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders. Anil Kumble will be let go by the Punjab Kings. The Sunrisers Hyderabad, whose head coach at the moment is Tom Moody, are also considering the prospect of making changes.
According to the current state of affairs, three clubs will compete in IPL 2023 under a new coach. Additionally, before IPL 2023 begins, that number may rise.
It is significant to note that these teams struggled in the IPL last season. Punjab, Kolkata, and Hyderabad came in sixth, seventh, and eighth, respectively, and as a result did not advance to the Playoffs. The owners of each organisation expect results with the amount of money invested, however this team’s efforts fell short.
It would not be accurate to claim that KKR’s coach failed, though. Brendon McCullum was actually a good fit for the management, but after he accepted the England manager’s position, KKR had to consider other choices.
Before settling on Chandrakant Pandit, an Indian coach, they considered a few alternatives. Given that Pandit had performed well at the domestic level and that the IPL features a distinct type of pressure-filled cricket, it was an intriguing decision.
Kumble’s contract with Punjab Kings, which he assumed control of for a three-year period in IPL 2020, is not likely to be renewed by the team. Only 19 of his 42 matches were victories over that time, which is a poor win percentage.
The Punjab franchise is considering several candidates, including coach Trevor Bayliss and former England captain Eoin Morgan. There are rumours that the franchise might be willing to let an Indian take the helm.
Sunrisers has a far more intriguing situation. They are keeping things under wraps, but they are also open to hiring a new coach in Hyderabad if they find someone qualified for the position. They haven’t said anything about it so far.
