Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday announced that former India bowling coach Bharat Arun will now take up the same role at KRR for the fifteenth edition of the Indian Premier League. He took over from Kyle Mills with immediate effect.

Arun worked with the Indian team for 6 years and is credited for shaping India’s pace attack that has dominated the opposition batting units since the start of 2018. Arun worked with Royal Challengers Bangalore from 2015 to 2017. Since the national coaches had to leave their IPL contracts, Arun left RCB in 2017.

Making the announcement of his appointment, Venky Mysore, CEO & MD of KKR said, “We are very excited to have someone of the calibre of Bharat Arun joining us as our bowling coach. He will bring a wealth of experience and expertise to KKR’s strong support staff. We are delighted to welcome him to the Knight Riders family.”

Head Coach Brendon McCullum said, “A warm welcome to B Arun to the KKR coaching staff. With a strong and successful pedigree in the international game, I’m sure Arun will complement the current staff we have and I look forward to working with him. His experience at international level and the ability to give confidence and clarity to our bowling group will be important, as we attempt to quickly align a new group of players to the values and style of play for KKR”.

B Arun said. “I’m very excited and looking forward to becoming part of a highly successful franchise, such as the Knight Riders. I have admired the Knight Riders franchise for not only being very successful in the IPL & around the world in T20 leagues but also for the way it is very professionally run”
