MI recently overhauled its current coaching setup, which was followed by the hiring of additional support staff. Zaheer Khan, who served as the director of cricket operations up until last season, has been promoted to the position of global head of cricket development, replacing Mahela Jayawardene, who has been the head coach of the Mumbai Indians since 2017. Both of them will be involved with the group’s three teams.

The favourite to succeed Mahela Jayawardene as the head coach of the IPL’s Mumbai Indians is Mark Boucher. According to the most recent information, Simon Katich will replace Boucher as head coach of MI Cape Town in the SA20 competition.

The Mumbai Indians organisation confirmed Katich’s hiring on Thursday in a media statement, adding that Hashim Amla will serve as his assistant as the team’s batting coach, while Robin Peterson will serve as general manager. Fielding coach James Pamment will remain in his position.
