Winners of the 2016 Indian Premier League (IPL), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Monday named Brad Haddin as their assistant coach.

The former Australia vice-captain, who replaced Simon Helmot in the role, will join the fellow Australian and coach Trevor Bayliss’ team of support. 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 following the Ashes 2015, which Australia lost 2-3.

The former wicketkeeper-batsman has had an international coaching experience, having worked as Australia’s fielding coach since 2017. He had also worked in a coaching capacity with Australia A.

Both Bayliss and Haddin 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.

In last month, SRH had parted ways with Tom Moody after a seven-year stint and brought England’s World Cup-winning coach Bayliss on the board.

In a statement, SRH had said: “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.
