Royal Challengers Bangalore New Management, Andy Flower Got Post Of RCB Head Coach

The Royal Challengers Bangalore team has appointed former Zimbabwe cricketer and ICC Hall of Famer Andy Flower as the new head coach of its men’s IPL team.

The Bengaluru-based franchise has not renewed the contract of head coach Sanjay Bangar and the same is the case with director of cricket Mike Hesson.

In such a situation, this franchise will come down to play in the next season with new management. Significantly, till now the RCB team has not won the IPL title even once despite investing heavily.

Andy Flower is 55 years old, he is a legend of Zimbabwe, and he has also earned a lot of names in coaching. He has also been the coach of the Lucknow Super Giants team in the IPL 2022-23 season, but the Lucknow-based franchise did not extend Flower’s contract after his poor performance this year.

Flower is a former coach of the England cricket team. Speaking on the occasion, RCB said, “I am thrilled to welcome ICC Hall of Fame, T20 World Cup winning coach Andy Flower as their Head Coach.

Flower’s coaching experience will come in handy for the IPL team. Helped his teams to titles in PSL T20, ILT20, The Hundred, and Abu Dhabi T10.”

Andy has been one of the best wicket-keeper batsmen in the world. He has scored 12 centuries in 63 Tests at an average of 51.5. In a statement released by RCB, Flower said, “I am extremely proud to join RCB. Representing a franchise like his, his fan following is unmatched and I look forward to creating that atmosphere at Chinnaswamy next season.” Can’t wait to experience the full experience.

RCB’s journey in IPL under Mike Hesson and Sanjay Bangar was like this-


Mike Hesson joined RCB in August 2019. While Bangar took over as the head coach ahead of the IPL 2022 season. In the IPL 2020 season, the RCB team was eliminated after losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Eliminator.

In the IPL 2021 season, he lost in the Eliminator against KKR. In the IPL 2022 season, they lost to the Rajasthan Royals in the second qualifier.

RCB failed to qualify for the playoffs in the IPL 2023 season. This time their captain was Faf du Plessis. Let me tell you, the team of Lucknow Super Giants has also appointed Justin Langer as their new head coach. Langer is going to join which team for the first time in IPL.

The team management did not give any reason for the ouster of Andy Flower but it is believed that the poor performance of the franchise in the last season could have been the only reason.

Now the future of Gautam Gambhir as the mentor of this team has also been clouded with doubt.
