KKR announces new assistant coach

October 08, 2009 09:17 PM

Kolkata Knight Rider’s management has announced Delhi Ranji team coach and former Indian wicket-keeper Vijay Dahiya as assistant coach for KKR in the upcoming IPL season.

Reacting to this the former Indian wicket keeper said that it is good opportunity for him.

"It's a fantastic opportunity for someone like me," Dahiya was quoted as saying by a paper.

He also said that it will be a great experience to work with the former Pakistan bowler Wasim Akram, who is been appointed as a consultant for KKR.

"Whoever comes as chief coach would have had a lot of international exposure that I can benefit from. In addition, it will be a great experience working with Wasim bhai (former Pakistan captain Akram)" – he said.

KKR has planned to get an Indian and foreign blend in their coaching department. In the past two seasons KKR did not had even a single Indian in the coaching department which was highly criticized.

This comes as an important decision as they are hoping to turn the fortunes in the third season of IPL.

Although it is much speculated that KKR has decided to give the leaders cap to the former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly, the management has not yet confirmed or either denied the news.

Sources close the management say that there won’t be much surprises in that decision which clearly says that it is almost certain that Ganguly is about to be renamed as the captain for the next season.
