Jonty Rhodes, who previously worked in the Mumbai Indians camp, will work as fielding coach for the Kings XI Punjab franchise this season. On the other hand, Harbhajan Singh played an important role in the Chennai Super Kings last season. He would look to replicate the same form this season for his franchise.
