Flower's Potential Move to RCB Could Mark the End of Hesson and Bangar's Tenure

Former Lucknow Super Giants coach, Andy Flower, is reportedly a leading candidate to take on the role of head coach at Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), succeeding the current Director of Cricket, Mike Hesson, and head coach Sanjay Bangar. Hesson and Bangar are expected to conclude their contracts with the franchise on August 31, with indications pointing toward non-renewal.

Flower's Link to Rajasthan Royals and Advanced Talks with RCB

Sources indicate that following his departure from Lucknow Super Giants, Flower's name was associated with various franchises, including the inaugural champions Rajasthan Royals. Recent developments suggest that Flower's negotiations with the Bengaluru-based RCB are in the final stages, with a potential contract spanning multiple years.

AB de Villiers Eyed as Mentor for RCB Coaching Staff

In a parallel development, former RCB star AB de Villiers is reportedly being considered for a mentorship role within the RCB coaching staff. However, no official confirmations regarding this potential move have been provided at this time. De Villiers' involvement could add significant experience and expertise to the team's coaching setup.

It's worth noting that Andy Flower's former position at Lucknow Super Giants has already been filled by former Australia head coach, Justin Langer, who took over the reins just last month. As Flower's discussions with RCB near their conclusion, cricket enthusiasts and fans of the franchise await official announcements to shed light on the future coaching structure of Royal Challengers Bangalore.
