WV Raman, the former India batsman, has been appointed batting coach for the Kolkata Knight Riders ahead of the seventh edition of the IPL. Raman had earlier worked with Kings XI Punjab as the assistant coach for the 2013 season.

"Former Indian cricketer WV Raman has been appointed @KKRiders batting coach #PepsiIPL," the IPL tweeted on Wednesday night.

Raman, who played 11 Tests and 27 ODIs for India between 1988 and 1997, is currently the coach of Tamil Nadu, also his home state. Raman had earlier served as coach of the same side for four years before taking over as Bengal coach in 2010. He was replaced in 2013 by Ashok Malhotra and then returned to coach Tamil Nadu.

The other members of the Knight Riders coaching staff include Trevor Bayliss (coach) and Vijay Dahiya (assistant coach). The 2012 winners had a poor season last year, finishing seventh out of nine.
