Moody was appointed as SRH coach in 2012 and has led the team to playoffs in 2013, 2017, 2018, 2019 including a title win in 2016. He thanked the players, support staff and fans on Twitter following the announcement. "It’s been a privilege to work for Sunrisers Hyderabad, I have made many friendships and good memories. The success we’ve enjoyed over the 7 yrs is a testament to a hard working team on and off the field. A special thank you to the players, support staff and all the fans," he tweeted.

Australia's Bayliss had coached Kolkata Knight Riders from 2012 to 2015 during which they won two titles.

In a statement, SRH said, "After very careful consideration, the Sunrisers 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 2 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 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."

Bayliss, had been in charge of England since 2015 and led them to the top of the One-Day International rankings last year, and most recently their first-ever World Cup title. He has a contract until September.

England’s director of cricket Ashley Giles had said in February that they are almost certain to have one coach in charge of their Test, One Day International and Twenty20 teams after Bayliss completes his stint.

Highlights, IPL 2021, SRH vs PBKS Full Cricket Score: Punjab beat Hyderabad in last-over thriller

Live Score SRH vs PBKS, IPL 2021, Today's Match: Nathan Ellis to bowl the final over. Bhuvneshwar misses the first delivery, but he doesn't care, he's already off and sprinting. Holder on strike. He needs 16 from 5 to win it. Oof, that's a terrible decision from Ellis, it's got good length on it and Holder sends it looping away for a six over long-on. Ellis needs something different. He comes up with something different, it's a slower, shorter and wider ball that looks a bit inelegant, but denies Holder the opportunity to hit. It's a dot. Another dot, it's a slightly wider yorker. Wide. Holder then runs a double. 7 runs needed off the last ball. A six will be a super over. Holder has only one choice really, he needs to get it up and over the boundary rope. Ellis has a few choices at his disposal. What kind of delivery will he go for? It's a low full toss, and Holder can't get enough on it! It falls well short of the boundary rope, and the Punjab Kings win by five runs.
