Counted among the best professionals of the country, New Zealand’s Mike Hesson has resigned from his head coach position for Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab. After taking an exit from New Zealand’s coaching in June 2018, the 44-year old joined the Punjab’s franchise. However, he failed to help KXIP bag their maiden IPL title as the side failed to make it to the play-offs of the competition.
Revealing the news of his exit, the Dunedin born added that he enjoyed a great time and support while working with KXIP in India. Hesson was disappointed to leave the coaching but wished luck to his former franchise for the forthcoming edition of the tournament as he backed them to win the glorious title of India’s darling T20 league.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Kings XI Punjab franchise and wish to thank them for the season I had in charge. Whilst disappointed not to be able to build on the work we did this year, I’m sure success isn’t too far away for them. I wish them all the best for the future,” Hesson wrote on his Twitter handle.
