Kolkata, Oct 5 : City based Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) have roped in former Australian all-rounder David Hussey as the chief mentor and Kyle Mills, the former New Zealand pacer, as their bowling coach.
The duo will work closely with Brendon McCullum, who was recently named as the head coach of the side, Venky Mysore said on his Twitter account . Hussey, who played over 300 T20 games in IPL and international cricket himself, represented KKR from 2008-2010 as a player.
Mills, whose international career spanned from 2001 to 2015, is the second-highest wicket-taker in New Zealand's ODI cricket. "It's great to welcome David Hussey and Kyle Mills to the Knight Riders Family.They bring a wealth of experience as professionals and are terrific individuals," Venky Mysore said.
" We are confident that their contribution as part of the think tank of KKR, and to the KKR Academy, will be invaluable." (UNI)
