Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody will not return as Sunrisers Hyderabad’s head coach in the upcoming IPL season with the legendary Brian Lara is set to replace him for the upcoming IPL season, the team has announced on Saturday.

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.

“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,” SRH said in a statement. 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.
