IPL 2019: Mike Hesson to coach Kings XI Punjab

Former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson has been named as the Kings XI Punjab coach for the upcoming 2019 season of the Indian Premier League.

The 44-year-old, who stepped down from his full-time coaching role with Black Caps in June, replaces Australian Brad Hodge, and is set to sign a two-year contract with the Kings Eleven Punjab.

Hesson joins fellow New Zealanders Daniel Vettori and Stephen Fleming in coaching a franchise in the mega-rich Indian Premier League.

Under Hesson’s coaching career, New Zealand became a dominant Test team and also made the ODI World Cup final in 2015.

The Kings XI Punjab have never won the title.
