IPL 2022: Lara & Steyn

(IPL 2022) West Indies legendary batsman Brian Lara has been signed as SRH’s strategi advisor and batting coach, Lara has joined the new-look support staff which also consists of former Indian cricket Hemang Badani which will be in the role of fielding coach and scout. And along with Lara reports suggests that former South-African fast bowler Dale Steyn will take the role of bowling coach.

Apart from Lara, Steyn, and Badani SRH management has also signed Simon Katich as their assistant coach, the former Australian cricketer served his services recently to Royal Challengers Banglore before he pulled out due to personal reasons from the second leg of IPL 2021 which was held in UAE. Katich will be replacing his fellow countryman Brad Haddin who was assistant coach of SRH.

The change in the support staff comes after the franchise’s horrendous show in IPL 2021 where the team was able to win only 3 matches out of 14 and they ranked on the bottom of the points table. But before that team was able to qualify for the play-off for five consecutive seasons prior to 2021. The franchise has also parted their way with Trevor Bayliss who will be replaced by another Australian cricketer Tom Moody.

Former Indian cricket VVS Laxman will also depart from the support staff as he is being appointed as head of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) where he will be giving his services. Although the franchise has retained former Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralidharan and he has been designated as strategy and spin bowling coach.

So, we have to look if the new support staff will be able to bring a new fortune to the franchise or not, the IPL auctions for season 2022 will going to held in Bengaluru on the 12th and 13th of Febuary. Where the franchise will look to pick some middle order batsmen.
