Bengaluru: Royal Challengers Bangalore Saturday announced the appointment of Australia’s Luke Williams as their head coach for the second edition of the Women’s Premier League.
RCB had parted ways with Ben Sawyer after the team finished last in the five-team inaugural edition this year in March, managing just two wins in eight matches.
“I look forward to working with a playing group that will host a number of the most exciting players in Indian and world cricket, as we look to bring a bold and exciting style of play and success to our huge and passionate fan base,” Williams said in a statement.
The 43-year-old Williams coached the Adelaide Strikers to win the Women’s Big Bash League 2022-23. They also had reached the final on previous two occasions.
As their assistant coach, Williams played a vital role in the Southern Brave side winning The Hundred women’s competition this year.
Williams was also associated with the South Australian Scorpions team in the fifty overs’ Women’s National Cricket League. They ended as runners-up on two occasions.
Additionally, he was the head coach of the Australia A team during their England tour earlier this year.
