Mumbai: Rajasthan Royals have appointed former Australian fast bowler Rob Cassell as their new fast bowling coach for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Steffan Jones, who worked with the Royals in the fast bowling coaching capacity for the 2019 edition, will continue to work with the franchise, but now as a development coach during the off-season.

“We are delighted to have Rob Cassell on board as the new fast bowling coach for the upcoming IPL season. We have a great relationship from our days at Victoria together. I have followed his career closely and he is someone who has done the hard yards as a fast bowling coach in his career to date,” said Royals’ head coach Andrew McDonald.

“His pure focus is coaching and under his guidance, several fast bowlers have come through the ranks and succeeded at the top level. His eye for execution and innovation in the game is something that we’re looking to utilise here at the Royals. His varied experience will, hopefully, prove to be instrumental for our bowling line-up.”
