Macca in for Rajasthan Royals

Ex House pro Andrew McDonald has been appointed as the new head coach for Rajasthan Royals.

The former allrounder led Melbourne Renegades to the Big Bash title last season, while also having won the Sheffield Shield with Victoria.

He replaces Paddy Upton in the role after Royals, who won the inaugural edition of the tournament, finished seventh, level on points with bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore.

McDonald, who is also set to coach Birmingham Phoenix in the inaugural edition of The Hundred, has agreed a three-year deal with the franchise.
