The next season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) might be approximately 7 months away, but teams have no plan to leave everything for the end. For this reason, there are reports of shuffling in the management of many franchises and Rajasthan Royals is no exception.
As per the reports, former Zimbabwean skipper and England’s head coach Andy Flower is the front-runner to become the head coach of the Rajasthan Royals. Flower’s resume as a coach grabs attention of many as it was under him that England won their maiden ICC Trophy in the ICC World T20 2010 event. Moreover, he played a key role in England’s success in the Test cricket.
If things go smoothly, the 51-year old has high chances of replacing Paddy Upton. It won’t be an overstatement to say that Flower will have to work a lot on a team which has lost his mojo to an extent, particularly after being the champions of the inaugural edition. In the last season of the Indian T20 frenzy, Rajasthan secured 7th spot winning only 5 of their 14 games.
