Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) appointed former India pacer Laxmipathy Balaji as their bowling coach on Tuesday.

Balaji will replace Pakistan legend Wasim Akram who will miss the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 cricket tournament due to his other professional commitments. Akram was appointed the KKR bowling coach in 2010 and has helped the franchise to two titles in 2012 and 2014.

Balaji, who was an integral part of KKR’s bowling line-up from 2011 to 2013, also contributed to the team’s victorious campaign in 2012.
