IPL 2024: RCB part ways with Director of Cricket Operations Mike Hesson and Head Coach Sanjay Bangar

IPL 2024: In the 2023 season of the Indian Premier League, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s quest for their first IPL title faced another setback as they failed to qualify for the playoffs. After this latest disappointment, the team management has made the decision to part ways with both Director of Cricket Operations, Mike Hesson, and Head Coach, Sanjay Bangar.

Sanjay Bangar had been RCB’s coach for the past three IPL seasons, guiding them to the playoffs in 2021 and 2022, but narrowly missing out in IPL-2023.

โ€œWe thank Mike Hesson and Sanjay Bangar for their commendable work during their stints as Director of Cricket Operations and Head Coach of RCB,โ€ the franchise wrote on Twitter.

โ€œTheir professionalism and work ethics have always been held in high regard. A number of youngsters given a platform to learn and succeed in the last four years.

โ€œAs their terms ends, we wish Mike and Sanjay all the very best in life,โ€ the franchise added.

Both Hesson and Bangar, who was a former India batting coach, had a strong rapport with the former India and RCB captain, Virat Kohli.

However, the franchise now aims to bring in a fresh perspective and new ideas as they continue their pursuit of a maiden IPL title. The team’s inability to make it to the playoffs in the 2023 edition left their vast fan base disappointed.

As of now, it remains unclear whether RCB will opt for a foreign head coach or select an Indian candidate to take charge of the team going forward.
