RR 2021 Head Coach
Former Australian all-rounder Andrew McDonald was the head coach of the Rajasthan Royals last year. Unfortunately, the team finished in the last position on the IPL 2020 points table. Hence, the Royals parted ways with McDonald ahead of IPL 2021.
So far, the Jaipur-based franchise has not named a replacement for McDonald. The Rajasthan Royals Team roped in Kumar Sangakkara as their Director of Cricket Operations. Meanwhile, Shane Warne will be the squad’s mentor.
RR 2021 Batting Coach
The Rajasthan Royals have former Indian domestic cricket star Amol Muzumdar as their batting coach for IPL 2021. Amol never played international cricket nor did he play in the IPL.
However, Muzumdar has much coaching experience under his belt.
He has had coaching stints with the Netherlands, South Africa, India U-19s, and India U-23s. He had even mentored the Andhra Pradesh team in domestic cricket. Muzumdar will have the onus of improving the techniques of the rising stars in the RR camp.
