IPL 2023: Punjab Kings May Not Renew Head Coach Anil Kumble Contract

 - Sakshi Post

Punjab Kings (PBKS) are set to part ways with head coach Anil Kumble. According to reports, Kumble's current contract with the PBKS franchise expires in September and will not be renewed.

PBKS is one of the franchises that have yet to win the IPL trophy. Earlier in the IPL 2022 season, PBKS owners splashed the cash during the mega-auction to acquire a good mix of youth and experience, but they ultimately fell agonisingly short of the finish line. As a result, a change of guard is expected as Kumble steps down as head coach.

This comes just a few days after the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) hired veteran Indian coach Chandrakant Pandit as their new head coach, following the departure of Brendon McCullum to join England's Test squad.
