Ashwin, Rahane, Kaif share insights on use of masks, maintaining hygiene ahead of IPL
Ahead of IPL 2020, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Director of Cricket Mike Hesson, in a recent interview, said that he took up coaching at the very young age of 22 and admitted to sometimes regretting not being able to play when he sees flat wickets. Hesson was with Otago cricket originally for 15 years and after that took over as coach for Kenya’s cricket team but resigned after less than a year to become the head coach for the New Zealand Cricket team in 2012.
Hesson holds the title of New Zealand’s longest-serving coach. He led the Blackcaps to the final of the 2015 World Cup and parted ways with the team in 2018.
In an interview that was posted on Royal Challengers Bangalore’s official Twitter handle, Hesson stated that in the past he has had to deal with numerous injuries, but he also got an opportunity to become the director of cricket at a young age and absolutely loves that experience.
