Lara replaces Tom Moody as Sunrisers head coach

West Indies batting legend Brian Lara has been appointed as the new head coach of 2016 IPL champions Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Lara was already associated with the team as strategic advisor and batting coach of the Sunrisers in the 2022 IPL season.

He succeeds Tom Moody whose departure was expected.

“The cricketing legend Brian Lara will be our head coach for the upcoming #IPL seasons,” announced the franchise through their official social media accounts.

Meanwhile, Moody was recently appointed as director of cricket for the Glazers Family-owned Desert Vipers.

The Desert Vipers is one of the six franchises in UAE’s upcoming ILT20, which will begin from January 2023.

Moody’s first stint as the head coach of the Sunrisers ran from 2013 to 2019.

Under him, Hyderabad reached the playoffs five times and won the IPL for the first time in 2016.

In 2020, Moody was replaced by fellow Australian Trevor Bayliss as head coach in 2020.

However, Bayliss left after a dismal 2021 IPL season, in which the Sunrisers finished last in the points table.

This led to Moody once again being appointed as the head coach for IPL 2022.
