Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad has roped in England's World Cup winning coach Trevor Bayliss as its chief coach.

"After very careful consideration, the Sunrisers franchise has decided to take a different 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," the franchise said in a statement.

In his earlier role as the Kolkata Knight Riders coach, Bayliss had guided the franchise to two IPL titles. "He is a proven winner and we feel that his successful track record will be ideal in taking Sunrisers Hyderabad forward. We would like to thank Tom Moody who has made an enormous impact with the franchise helping us achieve 5 playoff appearances over the past 7 years, including a much treasured championship in 2016. We would also like to  thank him for his work ethic and leadership over our journey and wish him all the success moving forward," the franchise stated.

Under Bayliss, England won the Ashes in 2015, reached the World T20 final in 2016, and went on to win the World Cup last week.
