<p>Klinger most recently worked as Sydney Thunder’s assistant coach; the squad placed fourth in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL). He also collaborated with Phoebe Litchfield, the Thunder’s newest hire, as the Melbourne Renegades Men’s team’s head coach from 2019 to 2021.</p>
<p>In the Men’s BBL, Klinger became a renowned player. As the top run scorer in league history, he retired in 2019. He has expertise in many facets of the game, which will help the Gujarat Giants squad.</p>
<p>Michael Klinger said, “The Gujarat Giants have a chance to do something special in the Women’s Premier League Season 2,” in reference to his recent hiring as head coach. Working alongside cricket icon Mithali Raj, who has revolutionized women’s cricket in India, is something I am very much looking forward to. I want to lead the squad to the pinnacle of success with Mithali Raj, the Adani Sportsline family, and the rest of the group.</p>
<p>Mithali Raj, a team mentor and advisor, also praised Klinger’s hiring, saying, “Working with Michael will help bring out the best in the Gujarat Giants players.” Some of our team’s younger players would undoubtedly benefit from his well-known bat skills. It will be exciting to have Klinger in the changing area. With him in charge of coaching, we know we will be successful.</p>
<p>Michael Klinger is a highly deserving addition to the Gujarat Giants and Adani Sportsline family, according to Sanjay Adesara, CBO of Adani Sportsline. In the BBL, he has shown a strong coaching and playing background. This will undoubtedly benefit our squad both now and in the future, especially with the WPL season approaching. He and Mithali Raj will collaborate closely as they lead our team to new heights.</p>
<p>On February 25, 2024, the Giants will play their first game of the season against the Mumbai Indians.</p>
