P Ranganathan, the former Kerala Ranji batsman, has been appointed coach of the state side for the 2010-11 season. A BCCI Level II coach, Ranganathan had previously coached the state's Under-14, 19 and 25 sides.

TC Mathew, the secretary of the Kerala Cricket Association (KCA), said Ranganathan was appointed based on his impressive work with the South Zone U-25 team in particular. "He is currently the only Ranji Trophy player in the State with a Level II coaching certificate and he knows the players personally," Mathew told the Hindu.

A right-handed batsman, Ranganathan played 26 first-class games between 1985 and 1993, scoring 1110 runs at 26.42 with a century and six fifties. His appointment follows the sacking of Vedam Hariharan last season, who was dismissed after just one season. Last November, Hariharan had slapped the KCA with a legal notice claiming Rs 50 lakh in damages for non-payment of salary and unfair dismissal.
