“It’s my privilege to be with the Punjab Kings again,” Bangar said in a media release. “We have a good core of players as evidenced by the fact that we have the lowest number of player releases this year. The challenge is to give the squad the best support possible during and after the season to make the team stronger and deliver success.”
Before joining Kings, Bangar was with Royal Challengers Bangalore. Having joined as their batting consultant in 2021, he took over as head coach for the next two seasons and worked alongside director of cricket Mike Hesson. Royal Challengers made the playoffs in two out of the three seasons Bangar was with them.
Bangar has over a decade of experience in coaching, including two stints with the Indian team as their batting coach. Bangar’s first stint with Kings in 2014 was the team’s best-ever season, when they finished runners-up to Kolkata Knight Riders. However, they finished at the bottom in the next two years.
