Lahore Qalandars have appointed the Australian power-hitter, Ben Dunk, as their power-hitting coach for the seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The franchise announced the development on its Twitter handle:
— Lahore Qalandars (@lahoreqalandars) January 8, 2022
“Ben Dunk is replacing Phil Salt in a few matches, and he will be our power-hitting coach as well!” the franchise tweeted.
Dunk will replace Phil Salt, who will not be available for the first few matches due to national commitments. The 34-year-old will serve as the power-hitting coach when the English batter joins the team in the first week of February.
Dunk, who has been a proven match-winner for the Lahore Qalandars, wasn’t picked in the first round of the PSL 7 draft on 12 December 2021. However, he returned to the franchise in the supplementary draft on 8 January 2022.
The left-handed batter has been brilliant for Qalandars in the last two seasons. For his heroics in PSL 5, Dunk was given the title of ‘Bubble-gum’ man.
