IPL: Tom Moody sacked as Sunrisers Hyderabad coach, Brian Lara named new head coach

Sunrisers Hyderabad have parted ways with head coach Tom Moody after a disappointing season in IPL 2022. The franchise has now named West Indian batting legend Brian Lara as their head coach. Lara was earlier working as the mentor of the team. He will now take full charge of the Sunrisers camp as the head coach. He will be assisted by Muttiah Muralitharan. 

Moody's term came to an end after the end of IPL 2022 and it has not been extended by the franchise for upcoming seasons. 

"As his term with us draws to an end, we would like thank Tom for his contributions to SRH. It has been a much cherished journey over the years, and we wish him the very best for future endeavours," wrote SRH on their Twitter handle while announcing Moody's sacking. 

Sunrisers have won IPL only once, when David Warner led the team to a title in 2016.

Moody had a successful stint with the Sunrisers between 2013 and 2019 when the team reached the playoffs five times and emerged champions in 2016. The 56-year-old was replaced by fellow Australian Trevor Bayliss as head coach in 2020 but he returned to SRH as director of cricket last year.

However, with the team finishing last with just three wins, Moody was elevated to the coach's position. Things didn't turn up well for Moody in his second stint as head coach as the Sunrisers ended the season at eighth position out of 10 teams with six wins and eight defeats.

Moody will now join Desert Vipers, one of the six franchises in the ILT20, after being recently appointed as its director of cricket. The tournament is scheduled to be held in the UAE in January next year.
