“I’m honoured to be given the Head Coach’s role with the Punjab Kings. A foundation franchise with an appetite for success. I look forward to working with a talented squad of players determined to compete for silverware,” Bayliss said in a press statement.
Apart from winning the World Cup, Bayliss has won two IPL titles with Kolkata Knight Riders in 2012 and 2014, and a Big Bash triumph with Sydney Sixers.
Bayliss was also the head coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2020 and 2021 IPL seasons. Under Kumble’s mentorship, Punjab Kings had failed to progress to the IPL play-offs for three consecutive times.
