Chandrakant Pandit became the head coach of Kolkata Knight Riders
On the eve, the two-time winner of the IPL trophy got a new helmsman: Chandrakant Pandit became the head coach of Kolkata Knight Riders. Recall that the position of KKR coach became vacant after Brendon McCullum signed an agreement with the England test team.
Venky Mysore, CEO of Kolkata Knight Riders, said that Chandrakant is an excellent option for the club.
“We are very pleased that Pandit has become the new head coach of Kolkata Knight Riders. Chandrakant is a true professional in his field. Pandit has extensive experience working with various teams. Signing such a specialist is a step towards progress,” Venky Mysore said.
Chandrakant himself also managed to comment on his appointment to a new position. The specialist noted that he was impressed by the internal system of Kolkata Knight Riders. Pandit stated that he would do his best to lead the team to the third Indian Premier Cricket League title in history.
