Former India bowler Ashish Nehra has been confirmed as Royal Challengers Bangalore coach and will part of the ‘coaching leadership team’.

Nehra, 39, is no stranger to the set-up, having been appointed bowling coach last season and will share duties alongside Gary Kirsten.

I want to thank the team management for considering me in a leadership position with the franchise and look forward to successful seasons ahead,” Nehra said in a statement after the announcement on Wednesday.

The ex-pacer brings plenty of experience to the role after playing in all three formats in a career spanning 18 years.
