Return of Sanjay Bangar to the Punjab ahead 2024 IPL

Sanjay Bangar who was earlier associated with the franchise has now again joined the team but this time with a different role. He will be the head of cricket development. Earlier he joined the team as a head coach during 2014 and 2016. 

Before joining the Punjab Kings (PBKS), he was with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) where he ended his term as a head coach. He joined RCB in 2021 as their batting consultant but after that he was appointed as a head coach in 2022 and remained there till 2023. Now the Royals appointed Andy Flower as their head coach

After joining the PBKS, Bangar said, “It’s my privilege to be with the Punjab Kings again. We have a good core of players as evidenced by the fact that we have the lowest number of player releases this year. The challenge is to give the squad the best support possible during and after the season to make the team stronger and deliver success.”

He will assist the head coach of the Kings, Trevor Bayliss. Also will be present with the management during the auction which will be held on 19th December. They have 29.1 crores left in their purse and released the least number of players as compared to the franchises.
