England's World Cup winning coach Trevor Bayliss appointed as Head Coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad
The man working behind the scenes and limelight who has ensured a maiden World Cup victory for England; it is none other than Trevor Bayliss, the head coach of the English team which came victorious in the latest edition of the Men's Cricket World Cup.
Soon after the overwhelming success, Bayliss signed a contract for the appointment as the head coach of the Sunrisers Hyderabad, for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.
Someone's introduction means bidding goodbye to someone else, Bayliss will replace Tom Moody who was serving the team since 2013. Moody had a great run as the Head coach he brought exceptional success to the team. Now it's time for him to show what he could bring to the team.
The Sunrisers management said that it was great to have Tom Moody for such a long tenure, and that Moody hadn't done anything wrong on his part.
It was solely a decision made based on the past records of Bayliss which he has set in the different parts of the world coaching different teams.
They added that they are looking forward to seeing what the Australian would bring with him. He had committed even before the start of the World Cup and said that he would step down as soon as the World Cup is over.
Before England, Bayliss had coached Sri Lanka as well.
It was under his guidance that Sri Lanka made it to the final of the Cricket World Cup 2011, though they lost to India.
IPL is not a new concept for Bayliss as he was associated with the Kolkata Knight Riders for a very long time. Under his coaching, Kolkata won the 2013 and 2015 editions.
This is not all. He also has the Big Bash Trophy under his belt when he coached the Sydney Sixers to title glory. Trevor Bayliss is a proven performer which is evident from his past records and his stats advocate his candidature.
