Kolkata Knight Riders announced today the addition of David Hussey as the Chief Mentor and Kyle Mills, the former New Zealand’s pacer, as their Bowling Coach. They will work closely with Brendon McCullum, who was recently named as the Head Coach of the side, for the next edition of the IPL.
Hussey, who has played over 300 T20 matches across franchise 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 the history of New Zealand’s ODI cricket.
Making the announcement, Venky Mysore, CEO and MD of KKR, said, “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. We are confident that their contribution as part of the think tank of KKR, and to the KKR Academy, will be invaluable”
