As he stepped down from Punjab Kings, it is expected that he might get a much better role ahead of IPL 2022 as a few teams are in the search of coaches including the two new added teams Ahmedabad and Lucknow.
According to the reports from Indian Express, a BCCI official claimed, "He sent his resignation to the team recently. It has been accepted. There is a good chance that he goes to one of the new teams (Lucknow or Ahmedabad)."
Wadia is happy after retaining Mayank Agarwal and Arshdeep Singh:
The former Zimbabwe cricketer has worked with Punjab Kings for around two years. He also shared his experience with the Indian great Anil Kumble and also worked with the CPL team, Saint Lucia Kings.
Besides, the co-owner of Punjab Kings seemed Wadia has seemed to be happy after announcing the retentions in the event. Punjab Kings only retained Mayank Agarwal and Arshdeep Singh ahead of the mega auction of IPL 2022.
"We are really happy about retaining Mayank and Arshdeep. Mayank has been a phenomenal player for us, really loyal to the franchise. Arshdeep also has been with us for a while and I can only see him improving.
I see him playing for India in the near future. At Punjab Kings, I don’t think we have done as well as we should have and could have. We could have definitely done better.
The most important thing is we strive to ensure the players and staff get the freedom they deserve and there is unity among them. One has to now look at continuing that spirit. Hopefully, we will get the right combination at the auction and we go forward from there," said Wadia.
