IPL 2024 Coach


Coaching is an integral part of a team's performance and brings a lot of input in terms of technical aspects of the game. With the modern-day game requiring a rapid approach in shorter formats, the coaches are demanding.


With players suffering physical injuries and mental stress in a crammed cricket schedule around the year, there is a need for specific coaches for extensive roles apart from the ones for bowling, batting, and fielding.


There are a few changes in the coaching staff of the 10 IPL teams but many faces will be the same as IPL 2024 comes around the corner.


Let's take a detailed look at all the ten head coaches and their support staff for IPL 2024:


Mumbai Indians Coach

The legendary Proteas wicketkeeper will continue to lead the five-time champions as head coach in IPL 2024.


Veteran Mumbai Indians player Kieron Pollard will continue to serve as the batting coach, while Lasith Malinga will lead the bowling department. The latter replaces former New Zealand pacer Shane Bond.
