On Friday, August 4, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) revealed Andy Flower as their new head coach. The ex-Zimbabwe cricketer replaces former head coach Sanjay Bangar.
Andy Flower, after spending the past two years with Lucknow Super Giants, has now found a new home in the IPL with Bengaluru. Joining LSG during their debut season in 2022, Flower worked alongside mentor Gautam Gambhir and captain KL Rahul, successfully guiding them to the playoffs in their first two seasons.
In a notable development, RCB officially announced the departure of Mike Hesson and Sanjay Bangar. Hesson, who took charge of the RCB team management in 2019, led the team to three consecutive playoffs before narrowly missing out on the top 4 spot in IPL 2023.
