Kamlesh Jain, who is currently serving as the physio of Kolkata Knight Riders, is in line to be the head physio of the Indian team. The Chennai-based Jain, who has been working with the Kolkata franchise since 2012, will replace Nitin Patel, in the position. Patel took over as the head of Sports Science and Sports Medicine at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru earlier this year. Jain, in his mid-30s, was an assistant physio at Kolkata Knight Riders under Andrew Leipus for seven years before assuming the role of the head physio in the last three seasons, since 2020.
