Royal Challengers Bangalore had yet another poor season in Vivo IPL 2018. They yet again failed to qualify for the playoffs of the tournament and performed quite poorly for the major part of the tournament. After a few dismal performances, the team management decided to get rid of head coach Daniel Vettori. Even some of the support staffs were also removed. Bangalore will definitely look to make a comeback next year in an attempt to win their maiden IPL title.
They haven’t named their new head coach yet. However, there has been a few preferences which have been laid down by the franchise. Their top priority for the post of the head coach is current Indian assistant coach Sanjay Bangar. If this doesn’t materialize out, former India coach Gary Kirsten might also be appointed. However, nothing is sure as of now.
Now without wasting any time let us have a look at 3 possible faces who might take over the reign from Daniel Vettori
Royal Challengers Bangalore surprisingly wants Sanjay Bangar to be the head coach of the franchise. However, as of now, it is not quite possible as Bangar is part of the Indian team. He is currently the assistant coach behind Ravi Shastri and it doesn’t entitle him to mentor or coach any of the IPL franchises.
It is highly unlikely that Bangar will leave the post of the Indian national team and join the Royal Challengers Bangalore. However, if anything materializes, Bangar will definitely be accommodated for the topmost post as he is the priority for Bangalore who is yet to win an IPL title in 11 years.
