Punjab team was out of league stage last season
So far successful in reaching the final only once

New Delhi. Punjab Kings are ready to sign World Cup winning coach Trevor Bayliss as the head coach before the 2023 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The 59-year-old Trevor Bayliss from New South Wales has been a regular in the IPL and recently coached Sunrisers Hyderabad. Punjab’s hopes would be on getting the title from this Australian coach. Bayliss led England to their first ODI World Cup title in 2019 and was also the chief of support staff for Kolkata Knight Riders when they won the IPL in 2012 and 2014. Punjab’s performance in IPL has not been satisfactory. Sunrisers Hyderabad has appointed Brian Lara as the new coach today.

Trevor Bayliss will replace legendary India cricketer Anil Kumble, whose contract was not extended as the team failed to reach the playoffs during his three-year tenure. Punjab Kings have reached the final in IPL history only in 2014, in which they lost to Kolkata Knight Riders. An IPL source told news agency PTI, “The team has decided to tie up with Trevor, who is the best in the role and his record speaks for it. The management is hoping that the team wins the title under his guidance. The contract with them will be signed soon.

Got out of the league stage 13 times
Looking at the overall record of Punjab Kings, the team was out of the league stage in 13 out of 15 IPL seasons. This can be used to understand the performance of the team. In the first season of 2008, the team reached the semi-finals while in 2014 the team was the runner up. The team has played 207 matches so far in the T20 league and has won 93. Lost in 110. That is, the team could not win even 50 percent of the match.

It is known that former Australian legend Tom Moody was associated with Sunrisers Hyderabad from 2013 to 2019 and led the team to the playoffs 5 times. In 2016, the team also became the champion under the captaincy of David Warner. However, later Warner was also out of the team and Kane Williamson was given the command of the team. But the team could not perform as expected.
