Umar Gul named Head Coach of Galle Gladiators

Former Pakistan paceman Umar Gul has been appointed Head Coach of Goal Gladiators before the second edition of the Lanka Premier League (LPL), which is scheduled to take place from December 3 to 23 at two venues; the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium and the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota.

Moin Khan was in command of the Gladiators last season, but for personal reasons, he will not be able to compete in the next tournament. Therefore, the franchise is roped to Gul, who has extensive experience with 20 over formats. Moreover, all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who captained the team in the first edition, will not be available for the second edition.
