In the continuous turns and twists of Delhi cricket, Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) appointed Parvinder Awana as their bowling coach for the upcoming Ranji Trophy. The appointment came just after the resignation from Virender Sehwag, Aakash Chopra and Rahul from their respective Cricket Committee advisory roles.

The Delhi fast bowler recently bid adieu to his international boots and was appointed as the junior selector of the Delhi cricket. However, he resigned from the role three days before the appointment as the bowling coach.

Awana played for a considerable amount of time for Delhi in his first-class cricket. He was once picked for Indian team when England toured India.

However, he failed to grab any wicket to his name eventually missing out a place.

He also featured for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Parvinder Awana had a roller-coaster ride with them as he never really been consistent for the team. However, it would be interesting to see how he excels in his new role. He would be crucial for Delhi in the upcoming Ranji Trophy.
