It seems like Royal Challengers Bangalore are working on their team management for the upcoming edition of IPL (Indian Premier League). Recently, they sacked Daniel Vettori from the role of head coach and instead appointed Gary Kirsten. Now, they have added Ashish Nehra to the list as well.

The left-handed former fast bowler has been the bowling mentor for the team in the recently concluded edition of IPL.

However, Royal Challengers Bangalore trusted the ability of the Delhi pacer who was given the promotion to coach the team.
