Former first-class cricketer Sanath Kumar was Wednesday re-appointed as the Baroda head coach for the the next two seasons, said an official from the Baroda Cricket Association (BCA).

Kumar, a former Karnataka medium-pacer who played from 1983-1990, had coached Baroda in the past too, from 2011 -2014.

“(The) committee appointed in the last Managing Committee meeting, telephonically reviewed and had short- listed 4-5 coaches and finally considering few important parameters selected Sanath Kumar as the head coach for BCA for two seasons 2019-20 and 2020-21,” BCA joint secretary Snehal Parikh said in a note, a copy of which is available with PTI.

The association also decided to appoint Afzal Khan as the head trainer for the Baroda team.
