World Cup-winning coach Trevor Bayliss is set to take over as the new head coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad for the next season of the Indian Premier League.
Bayliss, whose tenure with England will conclude by the end of the Ashes series, will replace fellow Australian Tom Moody who coached the IPL franchise for seven seasons.
Under Moody, Sunrisers won the coveted trophy in 2016 and finished as runners-up in the 2018 edition of the tournament.
This will mark Bayliss' second association with the IPL after having served as Kolkata Knight Riders' head coach from 2012 to 2015 helping the franchise to two titles.
Bayliss' prolific track record has seen him lead Sydney Sixers to the Big Bash League title in 2010-11 and it was under him that Sri Lanka finished second-best in the 2011 World Cup.
Bayliss' stint with England spurred a dramatic transformation of their limited overs unit in the aftermath of the 2015 World Cup group stage exit.
England almost accomplished their second World T20 title in 2016 as they faced defeat in the final against the West Indies while they registered their maiden World Cup win at Lord's on Sunday.
"After very careful consideration, the Sunrisers franchise has decided to take a different direction with the Head Coaching role and will be parting ways with the services of Tom Moody," the statement from Sunrisers Hyderabad read.
"Trevor Bayliss, England's 2019 World Cup-winning coach, has been appointed Head Coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad. Trevor has already won 2 IPL trophies with KKR and has also won the Big Bash League and Champions trophy with Sydney Sixers."
"He is a proven winner and we feel that his successful track record will be ideal in taking Sunrisers Hyderabad forward."
Sunrisers scrambled through to the playoffs in the 12th edition of the league but lost to Delhi Capitals by 2 wickets and could not progress further.
