Kolkata: Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday parted ways with head coach Jacques Kallis and assistant coach Simon Katich following a below-par IPL 2019 in which they finished fifth. The team however has not taken a call on the future of captain Dinesh Karthik who was part of India’s World Cup squad. “Jacques Kallis has been an integral part of the KKR family & will always remain so. We will be exploring ways of working with Jacques as we pursue our vision of establishing the Knight Rider brand as a global brand,” KKR CEO Venky Mysore was quoted by the team’s website. Kallis joined the side in 2011 as a player before replacing Trevor Bayliss as head coach in October 2015.
