Ex-Tamil Nadu player Malolan Rangarajan feels that he is lucky after being appointed as a coach in the upcoming season of the Caribbean Premier League.

The 31-year-old all-rounder is very happy after getting a position at a very young age. He is going to serve St Kitts and Nevis Patriots as their strategy and assistant coach.

“I am lucky to get this opportunity now…so early in my coaching career. I am excited…It is an interesting challenge to be a coach at this time and I am looking forward to it,” Rangarajan told PTI.

Rangarajan last played a match during Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) on 7th August 2019 for Lyca Kovai Kings. He even represented VB Thiruvallur Veerans during the previous edition of TNPL.

The off-spinner has 136 first-class and 10 List A wickets to his name. He has even been handy with the bat and has scored 8 half-centuries and 1 century across all formats.

Last year, he joined IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore as their head of scouting. He is currently in India as will be flying to the Caribbean once travel arrangements are made.

CPL is scheduled to start on August 18 and the player will have to leave in a day or two in order to join the team after a 14-day quarantine period.
