Rajasthan Royals have started their IPL 2022 preparations by making two new appointments in the coaching department. Former Sri Lankan and Mumbai Indians pacer Lasith Malinga will be the franchise’s fast-bowling coach, while the excellent coach Paddy Upton will return in a unique role as the “Team Catalyst”.The highest wicket-taker (170) in IPL history, Malinga will bring in a great experience with him to the RR camp. He’ll work with an exciting fast-bowling group comprising the likes of Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Navdeep Saini and Nathan Coulter-Nile.

 

“It’s a wonderful feeling for me to return to the IPL and an absolute honour to join Rajasthan Royals, a franchise that has always promoted and developed young talent. I am excited by the pace bowling unit we have going into the tournament and looking forward to supporting all the fast bowlers with the execution of their game-plans and their overall development. I’ve made some very special memories in the IPL with Mumbai Indians and now with Royals, looking forward to new experiences and creating great memories in this journey.”
