Chennai-based Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) franchise Tamil Thalaivas on Monday announced Edachery Bhaskaran as their chief coach for the upcoming sixth season, beginning in October.

Bhaskaran's predecessor -- Kasinatha Baskaran -- has been named the Technical Director - Thalaivas' Strategic Grassroot Programme, according to a release.

Speaking about his appointment, Bhaskaran, the former U Mumba coach said, "As a coach, while I look to build on Tamil Nadu's deep, historic affinity with Kabaddi, I am also working on building a team that could complement each other's' strength."

"I am also glad to be working alongside the management of the Tamil Thalaivas who have in past discussions indicated a similar roadmap for the sport in the state and for the team in the League," the coach added.

Tamil Thalaivas CEO Viren D'Silva said, "We welcome Coach Edachery Bhaskaran to the Tamil Thalaivas family. We thank Coach Kasinatha Baskaran for his leadership in the PKL Season 5 and for taking up the new role in the Strategic Grassroot Programme for Tamil Nadu."

"We wish both coaches all the best ahead," he concluded.

The sixth season of the PKL, which will run for 13 weeks, kicks-off on October 19.
