Haddin named Sunrisers Hyderabad’s assistant coach
Former Australia wicket-keeper batsman Brad Haddin has been named as the assistant coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Brad Haddin is set to join Sunrisers Hyderabad as their assistant coach and he will company head coach Trevor Bayliss. They both have worked in the captain and coach capacity and powered Sydney Sixers to Champions League Twenty20 triumph in 2012.
Haddin, who won the World Cup with Australia in 2015 retired from international cricket following the Ashes 2015, which Australia lost 2-3. He has international coaching experience, having worked as Australia’s fielding coach since 2017. He had also worked in a coaching capacity with Australia A.
Haddin and Bayliss had previously been a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) set-up, albeit at different times. While Bayliss coached the side from 2012-2015, Haddin played for the team in 2011.
Sunrisers Hyderabad released a statement:
“After very careful consideration, the SRH franchise has decided to take a new direction with the head coaching role and will be parting ways with the services of Tom Moody. Trevor Bayliss, England’s 2019 World Cup-winning coach, has been appointed head coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad. Trevor has already won two IPL trophies with KKR and has also won the Big Bash League and Champions League with Sydney Sixers. He is a proven winner and we feel his successful track record will be ideal in taking Sunrisers Hyderabad forward.”
