3 Head Coaches in 2022 T20 WC who are just around 40 years old

Head Coach T20 World Cup

40 can be considered the age by which most cricketers retire from the game. Of course, we have witnessed exceptions such as Imran Tahir and Chris Gayle stretch their stint at the highest level for a few more years. While individuals usually start coaching squads after retirement, the target to reach the highest level might be around the time when they reach 50. That said, due to the rise of T20 leagues, young former cricketers are also preferred because they are updated with the latest tactics in T20 cricket. When it comes to international cricket, though, nations usually do not take that approach. Nevertheless, there are few countries that have opted for a relatively younger coach. These individuals will be at the helm for the upcoming T20 World Cup. In this article, we take a look at three Head Coaches in the 2022 T20 WC who are just around 40 years old.

1) Shane Burger (40 years old)  - Scotland

Shane Burger played domestic cricket in South Africa but never played for the country. He had a pretty early beginning to his career as a coach and hence, it was around three years ago that he was named the Head Coach of the nation. He has now got sufficient time and will want to produce results.
