Written by Rohit Pawar

Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Rajasthan Royals have appointed Australia cricketer Andrew McDonald as their new head coach for a period of three years. McDonald has been a part of the IPL in the past having played for the Delhi Daredevils in the 2009 edition before being signed up by the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in 2012-2013. He was also the bowling coach of RCB.

Reacting to his appointment, McDonald said: “I’m delighted to join the Royals family. It’s a great honour to take on this responsibility.

“The Rajasthan Royals is a new, exciting challenge for me, and I can’t wait to get started working with our world class players and coaches in one of the biggest sporting leagues in the world.”

The former Australian all-rounder has coached Leicestershire, Victoria and the Melbourne Renegades.

The 38-year-old, who played four Tests for Australia, had guided Victoria to the title win in Sheffield Shield in his first year as senior coach. He then moved the Renegades from seventh position to winning the Big Bash this year.
