Kolkata Knight Riders bowling coach Wasim Akram is not available in this IPL season because he wishes to spend some time with his family. Akram has been with Knight Riders for the last three seasons and helped them to hold the 2012 championship.

“Wasim Akram will be badly missed,” Knight Riders’ chief executive Venky Mysore said. “He is a legend and a great motivator to have around the team. However, we fully appreciate the reason why he will be unavailable. We hope to work with him in future.”

The Knight Riders haven’t named a replacement for Akram, though they have drafted in Team India’s Trevor Penney as fielding coach. The 44-year-old Penney has also worked with the now-defunct Deccan Chargers.
