KKR 2022 Batting Coach


The Kolkata Knight Riders Team does not have a specific batting coach. However, one can assume Brendon McCullum would be helping out the KKR batters in the nets. McCullum is one of the most successful batsmen in Kiwi cricket history.


Besides, former Australian all-rounder David Hussey is the mentor of the Kolkata Knight Riders. Even Hussey has much T20 experience under his belt. Abhishek Nayar is present in the coaching staff as the assistant coach.


KKR 2022 Bowling Coach


The Kolkata Knight Riders have former Indian cricket team bowling coach Bharat Arun as their bowling coach. Arun never played in the IPL, but he played a huge role in the success of the Indian cricket team’s pace-bowling attack over the last few years with his coaching.


The KKR coach 2022 for bowling played two Tests and four ODIs for the Indian team. He was a medium pacer, and he took a total of five wickets in international cricket.
