Sanjay Bangar appointed Royal Challengers Bangalore head coach
Former cricketer Sanjay Bangar has been appointed head coach of Royal Challengers Bangalore on a two-year deal. He has been part of the Indian dressing room in various roles for five years since 2014, including batting coach, interim head coach and assistant coach.
He was appointed as the batting coach of the RCB in February 2021.
Speaking on his appointment, the 49-year-old veteran stated he is committed to winning an IPL trophy for the fans. Speaking on the RCB website, Bangar said:
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the RCB management and the entire structure of RCB for reposing faith in me and giving me the opportunity in the position of head coach to serve a great franchise."
"Our work has already begun in terms of auction strategies and retentions and all of that. All our scouting teams and coaches have already put their heads together and have started work in the right earnest. I would like to assure each one of the RCB fans that we are committed to building a strong franchise and we are committed to achieving the long-cherished dream of RCB to win an IPL championship," he finished.
Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore will be without their star batsman AB de Villiers, who recently called time on his cricketing career. They will also have a new captain on board after Virat Kohli relinquished his duties at the end of IPL 2021.
