Mike Hesson RCB Head Coach for the Rest of the IPL 2021 Matches
The Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise heard the bad news on the day Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chamira joined the team. Simon Katich stepped down as head coach. Former Kiwi coach Mike Hesson will be the head coach of RCB for the rest of the IPL 2021.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise said in a statement that head coach Simon Katich had resigned for personal reasons before starting the rest of the IPL in the UAE. Mike Hesson will be the head coach for the rest of the 2021 IPL as his replacement.
In 2019, former Australian cricketer Simon Katich was appointed as the head coach of Virat Kohli. Mike Hesson was added to the post of Director of Cricket. Mike Hesson will be seen in two roles for Royal Challengers Bangalore after Katich resigned.
Earlier in the day, Royal Challengers Bangalore reported that Sri Lankan bowler Vanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chamira, and Singapore’s David have signed contracts to play in the rest of the 2021 IPL.
Two Aussie cricketers, Adam Zampa, Daniel Samms, and Kiwi pacer Allen, who are in India’s first-half squad, will not travel to the UAE to play the rest of the IPL matches. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) franchise has recruited Hasaranga, Chamira, and David as their alternatives.
The rest of the IPL, which was cut in half due to Corona, is starting in the UAE before the World Cup. The rest of the IPL will start from September 19. The final will be played on October 15. RCB will start the rest of the IPL from the number three position in the points table.
