Shane Bond named head coach of Mumbai Indians’ UAE team MI Emirates | Cricket News

The Mumbai Indians announced on Saturday that former New Zealand fast bowler Shane Bond has been appointed as the head coach of their MI Emirates team based in the United Arab Emirates International League T20 (ILT20) competition.
Bond, who is also the bowling coach of the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL), will be assisted by Parthiv Patel (batting coach), Vinay Kumar (bowling coach) and James Franklin (field coach).
Former India international Robin Singh has been appointed as the franchise’s managing director.

“It’s always exciting to build a new team and I look forward to continuing MI’s legacy and inspiring our players to take the game to new heights,” Bond, 47, said in a statement.
The six-team ILT20, which will launch in January, will be the second highest-grossing Twenty20 tournament after the trending IPL in terms of player compensation.
