Punjab Kings’ (PBKS) head coach Trevor Bayliss has said that he wants his players to start enjoying the game first. The Australian cricket coach has been appointed by Punjab after sacking Anil Kumble leading into the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 season.
“I want them to play the game for the reasons they started playing the game at the first place, which is the love for the game. I don’t know what it was like in the past but I will run this team like I have always done,” Bayliss said during a press conference ahead of the 2023 season.
“It doesn’t guarantee success but we will enjoy ourselves and play with a smile on our face but when we need to we will do the hard yards in the practice field,” he added.
Trevor Bayliss wants the team to finish well with the bat
“One of the things that we thought was lacking last year was not able to finish off innings with the bat. That was one of the reasons why we decided to go after a young all-rounder like Sam. He gives us strength in the middle-order and he is a world-class bowler as well,” Bayliss said.
