Kochi: Former Indian pacer Tinu Yohannan has been appointed the new coach of Kerala’s Ranji Trophy cricket team.

Tinu is replacing Dav Whatmore, who has been with the team for the last three years. Under Whatmore, Kerala had entered the semi-finals of Ranji Trophy for the first time in their history. However, poor performances last season led to his dismissal.

At present, Tinu Yohannan is the director of the High Performance Centre (HPC) set up by the Kerala Cricket Academy (KCA). The HPC aims to develop and nurture players following the model of the national cricket academy.

Tinu is the first Malayalee to play for India in a test match. He made his debut against England on home soil in 2001. His One Day International (ODI) debut was against West Indies on 29 May 2002 in West Indies. He represented India in three tests and three ODIs. He has taken 5 wickets each in both tests and ODIs.

Tinu played for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2009 edition of the Indian Premier League. The Kollam native represented Kerala between 1999 and 2008.
