“It’s my privilege to be with the Punjab Kings again. We have a good core of players as evidenced by the fact that we have the lowest number of player releases this year.

The 51-year-old was the head coach of Royal Challenger Bangalore for the last two seasons.
“Sanjay is a experienced coach and has great credentials. Over the season and beyond we will leverage his ability to build relationships across the squad,” said Punjab Kings CEO Satish Menon.
