He will replace world champion Anil Kumble who is set to become the head coach of Punjab Kings

New Delhi: Punjab Kings are all set to sign World Cup-winning coach Trevor Bayliss as their head coach ahead of the 2023 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The 59-year-old from New South Wales has been a regular in the IPL and most recently coached Sunrisers Hyderabad. Punjab’s hope will rest on winning the title from this Australian coach.

Bayliss led England to their first World Cup title in 2019 and was also the main support staff of Kolkata Knight Riders when they won the IPL in 2012 and 2014. Bayliss will replace India cricket legend Anil Kumble, whose contract was not extended as the team failed to reach the playoffs during his three-year tenure.

In the history of IPL, Punjab have reached the final only in 2014, in which they lost to Kolkata Knight Riders. An IPL source told PTI, “The team has decided to tie up with Trevor, who is the best in the role and his record speaks for it. The management is hopeful that the team will win the title under his leadership. An agreement will be signed with them soon.
