Punjab Kings appoint Trevor Bayliss as the head coach
Anil Kumble has been a very poor coach numbers wise in the IPL for Punjab Kings. Punjab Kings haven’t won an IPL trophy in IPL history and as a matter of fact, they have only qualified for the final of the tournament just once in 2014 under George Bailey.
They have decided enough is enough with Anil Kumble and have appointed Trevor Bayliss the head coach for IPL 2023.

Anil Kumble was appointed as the head coach of Punjab Kings in the year 2020, and Punjab Kings haven’t qualified for the playoffs even once in the last 3 years under his tenure. There were some bizarre decisions by him in his tenures, and one has to say that Punjab Kings have waited enough to move on from him. Punjab Kings is the most unsuccessful franchise in the history of IPL with regards to qualifying for playoffs and finals.

Trevor Bayliss has 2 IPL trophies under his name. He coached KKR in 2012 and 2014 when they lifted the trophy. Gautam Gambhir was the captain of KKR then. KKR became a force in IPL only during that phase. Here’s what Trevor Bayliss had to say about his appointment
