Former Indian pacer Venkatesh Prasad has been named as the bowling coach of Kings XI Punjab, as the franchise confirmed the appointment through an official statement.

"Venkatesh Prasad, former right-arm medium-fast bowler and ex-chairman of the junior national selection committee (BCCI) comes on board as the team's bowling coach," KXIP said in a statement.

Prasad, who recently relinquished his role as the chairman of BCCI's junior selection committee, has previous coaching experience. He last coached the Uttar Pradesh senior side from 2012 to 2014, and has also been part of IPL coaching staffs (Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings). The 48-year-old shared his delight to be 'back on the field'.

"I've always found coaching exciting and it feels good to be back on the field. I'm looking forward to the new assignment with Kings XI Punjab. I started coaching soon after my retirement from cricket and that helped me evolve as a person," Prasad said.

Prasad joins a backroom staff that involves Brad Hodge as head coach and former India opener Virender Sehwag as director of Cricket Operations and team mentor.
