IPL 2019: Ryan Harris appointed bowling coach of Kings XI Punjab
Former Australian fast bowler Ryan Harris has been named the bowling coach for Indian Premier League franchise Kings XI Punjab.
He replaces former Indian fast bowler Venkatesh Prasad. The Punjab-based franchise also has roped in former New Zealand all-rounder Craig McMillan as their fielding coach.
The 2014 IPL finalists had earlier named Mike Hesson as their head coach.
“Having quality coaches like Harris and McMillan will be a great asset to the team. They have both performed as players on the big stage and have made the transition into quality coaches.
“They will be excellent additions to the coaching team,” Hesson, who replaced Australian Brad Hodge, said.
The franchise has always been mid-table performers and had ended at the seventh place in the last season, despite having had a promising start to the tournament.
They would enter the auctions this year with the highest salary cap after they let go of 11 players which included the likes of Aaron Finch, Axar Patel and Yuvraj Singh.
