Kolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) physiotherapist Andrew Leipus will no longer be part of the set-up as he has decided to move on after spending 12 years with the franchise, the former India team physio said in a tweet.
“After 12 seasons I’m moving on from KKR. Thanks to all the many coaches, players, support staff, management & the owners for an amazing journey & memories created over the years,” Leipus tweeted with a photo of him standing in front of the KKR jersey.
Australian Leipus was India’s physiotherapist from 1999-2004, also being at the helm of the National Cricket Academy.
KKR also parted ways with head coach Jacques Kallis and his assistant Simon Katich earlier in the week.
Kallis, who took over as head coach in October 2015 from Trevor Bayliss, helped KKR reach three consecutive play-offs before failing to make the cut in 2019. KKR won 32 of their 61 games under the tutelage of Kallis and Katich. IANS
