Ryan Harris appointed KXIP's bowling coach

Kings XI Punjab have roped in former Australian pacer Ryan Harris as their bowling coach for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the franchise confirmed on Wednesday. He will be replacing Venkatesh Prasad in the job, who took over the role before the start of the previous season.

Apart from Harris, KXIP have also roped in Craig McMillan (fielding coach), Brett Harrop (physio), Sridharan Sriram (batting coach) and Prasanna Raman (high-performance coach). Mike Hesson had already been confirmed as the head coach of the team earlier.

"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," Hesson said on new appointments.
