The Indian Premier League (IPL) team Sunrisers Hyderabad said on Monday that Brian Lara was replaced as head coach by Daniel Vettori. Lara was a great batsman for the West Indies.
Vettori has led Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL and has been an assistant coach for the Australian men’s team.
Before becoming the head coach at Hyderabad last year, Lara was the hitting teacher there. Under him, the 2016 winners won only four of their 14 games and came in last place in a league with 10 teams.
“As our two-year relationship with Brian Lara ends, we say goodbye to him,” the team wrote on X, the social media site that used to be called Twitter.
“Thanks for your help with the Sunrisers. We hope that everything goes well for you in the future.”
