Lance Klusener, who coached in Tamil Nadu Premier League last year is going to come back this year too.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the experience last year. I thought the quality of the tournament was top class. If we can build on that in the coming seasons, then we will be giving opportunities to many players to make a mark on the big stage,” Klusener told TOI on Friday.
He thinks that IPL fame Washington Sundar and also Vijay Shankar are going to be the limelights of the league.
“TNPL gave a platform for domestic talent in Tamil Nadu to flourish. The likes of Washington and Vijay Shankar benefitted from the tournament. Vijay Shankar may not have played in the competition since he was injured but he was part of the Kovai side and the experience he received stood him in good stead. If we can build on the first season of TNPL, then it will bring to the fore a lot of talent,” said Klusener.
“Klusener brings a lot to the table thanks to his experience. We made the semifinals in the maiden season of the competition and we decided to retain the staff for want of continuity,” confirmed Raju Mahalingam, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Lyca.
