3 World Cup-winning captains who could become the new Head Coach of Punjab Kings
As per reports, Punjab Kings have not renewed their contract for Head Coach Anil Kumble. Hence, the franchise will need to search for a new coach. There are plenty of options in the market and PBKS could go for a proven candidate. On that note, in this article, we take a look at 3 World Cup-winning captains who could become the new Head Coach of Punjab Kings.
1) Eoin Morgan
The 2019 World Cup-winning captain recently announced his retirement from the game. The southpaw was known as a tactician and influenced many games with his brilliant strategies. Therefore, it is inevitable that he comes into coaching in the future. The player could take this step as early as IPL 2023. Punjab Kings needs some fresh ideas and hence, they could take the former international player onboard.
2) Paul Collingwood
Paul Collingwood is also one of the World Cup-winning captains who could become the new Head Coach of Punjab Kings. The Englishman is currently an Assistant Coach for England. There were expectations that he would get the top position but Brendon McCullum and Matthew Mott were given the roles. Hence, it would not be a surprise if Collingwood is considered for a role in the IPL because he has had a lot of experience in the backroom department.
3) Daren Sammy
Daren Sammy is currently the Head Coach of the Saint Lucia Kings. This franchise is owned by the owners of Punjab Kings. Hence, if Sammy does well in the CPL, he might as well be given a job in IPL, too. Sammy is anyways a smart mind in T20 cricket. With his brilliant captaincy, he helped West Indies win the trophy twice. Hence, Sammy is deserving of a coaching contract, if at all he gets it.
