Bangar will closely collaborate with head coach Trevor Bayliss, and his first assignment in his new role will be the crucial IPL 2024 player auction, scheduled for December 19th in Dubai. This marks a historic first, as the IPL auction will be held outside India for the first time ever.

This isn’t Bangar’s first stint with the Kings. He initially joined as assistant coach in 2014, rising to the position of head coach for three successful seasons. He eventually moved on to pursue national duty as the Indian cricket team’s batting coach, followed by a stint as batting consultant and head coach for Royal Challengers Bangalore. With his contract expiring at the end of IPL 2023, Bangar is now back with the Kings, ready to contribute his vast experience and knowledge to their growth and success.
