The new Indian Premier League (IPL) season is set to start on March 26 and the tournament will feature CSK and KKR. The Punjab Kings will be aiming for their first title and they have appointed former England First Class cricketer Julian Ross Wood as batting consultant for the IPL 2022.
IPL 2022 will be an exciting season as it will be a 10 team tournament with the addition of two new franchises Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans. The teams have built their squad through the mega auction held recently and will be eager to claim the trophy. The Punjab Kings are chasing their first IPL title and will try to win it this time.
In order to prepare for the upcoming season, the franchise has appointed top-class English cricketer Julian Ross Wood as batting consultant with a focus on power. Wood has a reputation as a power drive pioneer. He worked individually with Ben StokesPritvi Shaw, Sam Billings and Carlos Brathwaite on technique for standing still and hitting the ball out of the park.
He will work alongside assistant coach Jonty Rhodes and the franchise hopes the duo will help the team win the title.
“We are thrilled to announce Julian Ross Wood as our new batting consultant for #TATAIPL2022,” the team announced on social media.
The franchise had Wood on its radar for the past two years, but they were finally able to secure his services for this season. The Punjab Kings need a turnaround as they have finished 6th out of eight teams for the past three seasons.
