Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, the Kings XI Punjab, have appointed Virender Sehwag as their head of cricket operations and strategy.
Sehwag played for the King XI from 2014 to 2015 and became the team’s mentor last year after announcing his retirement.
With head coach Sanjay Bangar having stepped down from his post last December, Sehwag has now been given more responsibility.
“It is such an honour to lead this team and mentor our young talent,” he said. “Kings XI Punjab is a team very close to my heart and I am looking forward to a great season with them.”
The Kings XI will be looking to turn their fortunes around in this year’s edition of the IPL as they have finished at the bottom of points table for the last two years.
