Former India coach John Wright was today appointed head coach of Mumbai Indians IPL team ahead of season six which begins on April 3.
Wright, a former New Zealand opening batsman, had a successful stint as coach of the Indian team from 2000-2005 and guided his home country from December 2010 to July 2012.
"During his time in India, John was instrumental in India's rise up in the international table including finishing finalist in the 2003 World Cup. In the relatively brief period he had been in charge of the Black Caps, the Kiwis improved upon its performance reaching the semi-finals of the last World Cup," a release from Mumbai Indians said.
It said Robin Singh, who was the coach of the side last season, will continue to be associated with the team.
"Robin Singh will continue to lend his services to Mumbai Indians," the release said.
