Royal Challengers Bangalore did not have notable names as the Assistant Coach for the men’s squad recently. However, with the Director of Cricket Mike Hesson parting ways and Andy Flower coming on as the Head Coach, we can expect a change in structure. Therefore, a few new assistant coaches could come on board. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of three former RCB players whom Andy Flower can take as Assistant Coach.
1) Eoin Morgan
Ever since his retirement, there have been reports suggesting that Eoin Morgan would look at a career in coaching. However, that has still not come to fruition. That said, a gig at RCB would be a perfect start to his career, if he wants to pursue it.
Having worked with Andy Flower before, there could be some ideas aligned with each other. Morgan himself is a tactically astute personality. Therefore, he is on this list.
2) Stuart Binny
Stuart Binny is someone who seems to have taken coaching seriously. He has already coached teams in the Plate Division and is now a part of the KSCA Maharaja T20 Trophy as a Head Coach.
It does make sense to have Indian names assist a foreign Head Coach. Binny has experience in the T20 format and for him to progress, it would be a big deal to learn from someone like Flower.
3) Dillon du Preez
Dillon du Preez is one of the former RCB players whom Andy Flower can take as Assistant Coach. The former South African all-rounder played for RCB in IPL 2009.
He is currently in charge of the Women’s Team in South Africa. He is experienced and would add value to Andy Flower. Having been a decent T20 cricketer himself, the youngsters from the squad would also learn from him. Maybe, RCB management can look at a future women’s team Head Coach if he does well.
