Brad Hodge has been appointed as the head coach of IPL side Kings XI Punjab. Hodge will report to former KXIP player Virender Sehwag, who now serves as the franchise's Director of Cricket.
Hodge, 42, is among the most sought-after personnel in T20 cricket for his immense body of work in the shortest format of cricket. He is one of just eight cricketers to aggregate more than 7000 runs in T20 cricket and remains an active player in franchise cricket. He will turn out for Melbourne Renegades in the forthcoming season of the Big Bash League.
