England Men’s performance director Mo Bobat has been confirmed as the new director of cricket at Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL. He will leave the ECB in February next year.
Bobat said –
“I’ve had the most amazing 12 years at the ECB. And it’s been both an honour and a privilege to have spent the last four years as Performance Director. Supporting our efforts towards multiple Ashes campaigns and World Cups has quite literally been the stuff of dreams.
Bobat added – “I’ll be forever grateful for all of the opportunities and support that I received over the years and will carry with me many special memories, shared achievements and friendships.”
40 years old Bobat has overseen the England Men’s pathway for the past four years, identifying and developing the players that have helped the team win World Cups in the 50-over and 20-over formats, while reinvigorating their Test fortunes under the captain-coach partnership of Stokes and McCullum.
