Ryan Harris.

Former Australia fast bowler Ryan Harris has been appointed IPL side Kings XI Punjab bowling coach having been a part of the side during his playing days.

Kings XI Punjab have undergone a wholesale change after the 2018 edition of the IPL where they finished second last. Earlier, former Australian batsman Brad Hodge was sacked one year into his three-year deal as coach and replaced by Kiwi Mike Hesson.

Harris replaces Venkatesh Prasad as the bowling coach as former New Zealand coach Hesson has ringed in the changes. Kings XI have also brought in New Zealand’s former all-rounder Craig McMillan as fielding coach.

“Having quality coaches like Harris and McMillan will be a great asset to the team. They have both performed as players on the big stage and have made the transition into quality coaches. They will be excellent additions to the coaching team,” coach Hesson said.

Earlier, retired India batsman Virender Sehwag had announced on Twitter the end of his association with Kings XI. He played for the team for two years before mentoring them from 2016 to 2018.
