Former legendary spinner’s stint with Punjab as a head coach has ended very recently.

Anil Kumble

In a big piece of news, the coaching stint of Anil Kumble with the Indian T20 League franchise Punjab has ended. Now the franchise is in search of a new head coach for the upcoming season of Indian T20 League 2023 next year. The top management has also decided not to renew the contract of Kumble for another season.

The board of owners of the Punjab franchise consists of Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, industrialists Mohit Burman, Ness Wadia, Karan Paul, and CEO Satish Menon. They all came to a conclusion to appoint another head coach after relieving the former legendary spinner of the duties.

So, here we’ll have a look at 3 former cricketers who might replace Anil Kumble in the role of new head coach of the Punjab-based team.

Eoin Morgan

The Ireland-born former legendary English captain Eoin Morgan has had a celebrated international career to his name, especially in the limited-overs format. The 35-year-old has also served as the captain of the national side of England very a long time up to 7-8 years. England won their first-ever ODI World Cup only under the captaincy of Morgan.

Apart from that, he has also contributed with his brilliant management and leadership skills in the Indian T20 League. He had been the captain of the Kolkata team before his retirement from cricket. So, considering his success as a leader in white-ball cricket, Punjab management can count on the former southpaw for the role of new head coach.
