In a major scoop Indian Premier League (IPL) side Sunrisers Hyderabad has named ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 winning coach Trevor Bayliss as its chief coach.

We would like to thank Tom Moody who has made an enormous impact with the franchise helping us achieve 5 playoff appearances over the past 7 years, including a much treasured championship in 2016. We would also like to thank him for his work ethic and leadership over our journey and wish him all the success moving forward,” the franchise stated.
