In a major revamp in support staff, Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Thursday announced their new coaching staff ahead of the IPL 2022 auction. West Indies batting legend Brian Lara and South African pace great Dale Steyn are roped in as SRH’s batting and pace bowling coach, respectively.
Former Sri Lanka bowler Muttiah Muralitharan has also been roped in as the spin bowling coach of SRH while former Indian cricketer Hemang Badani will be handling scouting duties along with being the fielding coach. Moody returns as head coach after fellow Australian Trevor Bayliss quit following the 2021 season. Moody was Sunrisers’ director of cricket last season.
Humbled by @SunRisers ' faith in me. This appointment as Strategic Advisor & Batting Coach gives me an opportunity to pass on what I know about our wonderful game of cricket to its future stars.
