Jaque Kallis is the new coach of the Trinbago CPL team. The change will be one of several made by the team’s new owners Red Chillies Entertainment who also own Indian Premier League’s team Kolkatta Knight Riders (KKR). Kallis was appointed as head coach of KKR this season after previously being listed as a batting consultant and mentor. There was no room for former West Indies wicketkeeper David Williams who previously served the team as assistant coach.
Kallis, who was a part of the successful Red Steel last year, will replace Australia Simon Helmot who has been named as an assistant coach. There is expected to be several more changes to the Red Steel franchise, with several members of the winning team not being selected this time around.
The 2016 CPL starts in July and will end on August 7.
