Bevan to coach Kings XI

Kings XI Punjab appointed former Australian ODI expert Michael Bevan as the coach for the upcoming IPL season IV.40-year-old Bevan, inarguably one of the finest finishers in limited-overs during the ‘90s represented Australia in 232 ODIs with a staggering average close to 54 and 6912 runs with six centuries and 46 fifties. He also played 18 Tests but he was always known for his capability to bail Australia out of trouble on many occasions.

Expectedly, Bevan seemed ecstatic about his new role. “I have been following IPL since season-I, and now thanks to my new role as coach of Kings XI Punjab, I am part of this action-packed cricket tournament. I love this game and I am quite excited to coach a team that is motivated by the same passion,” he was quoted as saying in a media release issued by the franchise.“The immediate focus of course is on getting the right pool of talent in the upcoming auctions in Bangalore. Post that, my boys and I promise to deliver some great cricketing moments this season of IPL.”

The promoters of the franchise on their part said, “We are thrilled to have Bevan as our coach for the upcoming season. His rich experience, huge skill and sheer commitment to the game will guide the team to perform and enhance their skills.”The COO of KXIP Col. Arvinder, said: “We are happy to be associated with a reliable and a complete cricketer like Bevan. We look forward to his association and welcome him to our KXIP family. His contribution to the team will be an added advantage for the players and help them deliver their best both on and off the field.”
