Kolkata Knight Riders Looking for New Coach, after Sacking John Buchanan

Kolkata Knight Riders sacked their Australian coach John Buchanan and is now looking for a new coach. There are several names doing round the tables now as a possible new coach of IPL’s Kolkata franchise. Dev Whatmore, Michael Bevan and Mark Waugh are currently in the list of possible coach of Kolkata knight Riders.

Kolkata Knight Riders finished eighth among eight teams in IPL 2009 and could manage to win only 2 games out of 14 matches besides a tie. Naturally, team owner Shah Rukh Khan as well as Kolkata fans are very much upset and I am not surprised to see that Kolkata has sacked the former coach of Australian team.

John Buchanan created a controversy when he came up with his multiple captain theory prior to the IPL 2009. In the face of huge criticism, Buchanan later on did not apply his theory in the tournament, but stripped off veteran Sourav Ganguly from captaincy. Now, let us see who is going to become the new coach of Kolkata Knight Riders.
