Indian Premier League side Sunrisers Hyderabad have named former Australia wicket-keeper batsman Brad Haddin as the assistant coach. Having worked as Australia's fielding coach, the former wicketkeeper-batsman has international coaching experience.
The former Australia vice-captain, who replaced Simon Helmot as the assistant coach, will join fellow Australian Trevor Bayliss, who is the head coach of the team. He is the coach of the current England squad which won the World Cup last month.
Trevor Bayliss, who was with Kolkata Knight Riders being owned by Sharukh Khan in the earlier seasons has bid goodbye to join Sun Risers Hyderabad. Kolkata appointed dashing Kiwi opener Brendon McCullum as their head coach who retired recently. SRH had parted ways with Australian coach Tom Moody after a seven-year stint with the side.
Haddin and Bayliss have previously worked in the captain and coach capacity and powered Sydney Sixers to Champions League Twenty20 triumph in 2012. “We welcome Brad Haddin as the Assistant Coach of SunRisers Hyderabad,” announced SRH on Twitter.
Haddin, the 2015 World Cup-winner, retired from international cricket had also worked in a coaching capacity with Australia A.
