PBKS 2021 Head Coach
Former Indian Test team captain Anil Kumble joined the Punjab Kings as their head coach and Director of Cricket Operations last year. Kumble will continue in the same role in IPL 2021 as well. The Mohali-based franchise could not reach the playoffs in Kumble’s first season as their head coach.
Still, the Punjab Kings team management has retained its faith in Kumble’s services. The former Indian leg-spinner played three IPL seasons for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Besides, Kumble also worked as the head coach of Team India.
PBKS 2021 Batting Coach
Former Indian Test opener Wasim Jaffer is the batting coach of the Punjab Kings. Like Anil Kumble, Jaffer played his all IPL games for the Royal Challengers Bangalore Team. Jaffer made a name for himself with his consistent performances in domestic cricket.
Jaffer played 31 Tests and two ODIs for the Indian cricket team. After retirement, he served as the batting coach of Bangladesh. Recently, Jaffer stepped down as the head coach of Uttarakhand.

PBKS 2021 Bowling Coach
Damien Wright was appointed as the Punjab Kings bowling coach ahead of IPL 2021. Wright is a former Australian player who never got to play international cricket. He proved himself as a worthy all-rounder in domestic cricket.
After quitting all forms of the game, Wright worked as the coach of the Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League. He even had brief stints with the New Zealand team and Bangladesh U-19s. Punjab Kings are the first IPL franchise to acquire his services as their coach.
PBKS 2021 Fielding Coach
South African legend Jonty Rhodes is the fielding coach of the Punjab Kings franchise. Rhodes had been with the Mumbai Indians Team for an extended period. However, he took a break from that role after IPL 2017.
Rhodes returned to the IPL as a coach last year, joining the Punjab Kings coaching staff. The PBKS fielders did an excellent job in the previous IPL season. Jonty’s experience will be the key for Punjab in IPL 2021 as well.
