IPL 2023: SRH New Coach: As InsideSport reported earlier, Sunrisers Hyderabad have confirmed parting ways with Tom Moody. The Australian was in charge of a disappointing IPL 2022 campaign last year. A day later, on Saturday, batting legend Brian Lara was also confirmed as the next SRH coach as well. Follow IPL 2023 LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

The appointment of Lara was confirmed on the team’s Twitter handle on Saturday.

The appointment of Lara does not come as a big surprise with the former West Indies captain having worked with the team last season. He worked as a strategic advisor and batting coach in IPL 2022. With the legend having worked with the present bunch of players in the dressing room, he should not have much problems in managing the team, which failed to deliver last season.

It is also important to note that this will be Lara’s first involvement as head coach of an IPL team. For that matter, any T20 team as well.

The head coach has a huge task ahead of him, and bring the best of the resources available to him in the squad. With Lara at the helm, the legend will be keeping a close look at players around West Indies and if possible, rope him into the franchise as well.

The West Indian has some huge shoes to fill as well. Moody, who was signed by SRH in 2013, overall had a good stint, helping them win the title in 2016 too. Things did not look good in his second stint as the IPL coach in the last two years.

Now, with the team having moved on from Moody, the men at the top of the Sunrisers hierarchy has trusted Lara to do the job. Hence, the IPL 2023 will be a litmus test as his first head coach job in the Indian Premier League.

He will also be looking at assistance from other members of the coaching staff. It includes ex-South Africa speedster  Dale Steyn as bowling coach. Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan is the spin-bowling and strategic coach. If the trio work as a team, it could prove to be their year in the next IPL.

Why Moody and SRH parted ways?

Tom Moody recently took charge of Glazers Family-backed Desert Vipers as Director of Cricket in the International League T20 in UAE. Hence, he will not be part of SRH’s crucial team-building sessions in January-February shortly after the IPL 2023 Auctions.

Moody’s contract was up for renewal this year. However, as per an ESPNCricinfo report, the Australian and SRH did not renew the contract with mutual consent. Moody returned to Sunrisers Hyderabad as the Director of Cricket in 2021.

Under his leadership, SRH had a fallout with David Warner, one of the most decorated players in IPL and the team’s captain. Warner was removed from captaincy and shortly dropped from the team completely in 2021. He was released ahead of IPL 2022 auctions. SRH also let Rashid Khan leave.

He was also in charge of team’s strange auction policies. Although it worked well, retaining Umran Malik, Abdul Samad’s retention did not work well. Elevated to captaincy, Kane Williamson had a nightmarish campaign. As a result, SRH finished 8th with 6 wins and 8 losses. This is the record, which Lara would be eager to change come next season.
