Sunrisers Hyderabad have parted ways with their head coach Trevor Bayliss just a day after teams submitted its retained players’ list.
Bayliss took over the charge of the Hyderabad franchise immediately after his 2019 World Cup success with England.
However, he could not replicate his international achievement in IPL as SRH finished third in IPL 2020 followed by a disastrous season in IPL 2021.
Trevor Bayliss has moved on: SRH
“He has moved on and we’ll announce the new coach soon,” an SRH official said, as quoted by Cricbuzz.
Bayliss was part of the team management that had axed David Warner from captaincy and later benched him in the final few games.
As expected, Warner was not retained by the Orange Army and hence the alliance between the two ended in a dramatic way. SRH retained Kane Williamson along with uncapped players Abdul Samad and Umran Malik.
Andy Flower resigns from PBKS assistant coach role
Andy Flower also stepped down from Punjab Kings’ assistant coach role on Wednesday.
Flower, who has been coaching for nearly 15 years, resigned as the assistant coach of the Punjab outfit, as confirmed by BCCI.
It is being expected that the former Zimbabwe player might get a role in one of the two new franchises (Ahmedabad and Lucknow) in IPL 2022.
“He sent his resignation to the team recently. It has been accepted. There is a good chance that he goes to one of the new teams (Lucknow or Ahmedabad),” a BCCI official told news agency PTI.
Flower joined Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in 2020 and worked under head coach Anil Kumble for two seasons along with Wasim Jaffer (batting coach), Damien Wright (bowling coach) and Jonty Rhodes (fielding coach).
