Lara was part of the SRH team management last season as a strategic advisor and batting consultant, and this will be his first assignment as a head coach of a T20 team.
As SRH Head Coach, Lara will be working alongside a star-studded support staff with South Africa pace legend Dale Steyn playing the role of bowling coach, while Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan is the franchise’s spin-bowling and strategic coach.
He’ll have a difficult task on his hands in his new role as head coach as the past two years have been the worst in franchise’s history. The Sunrisers finished at the bottom of the table in the previous edition, winning only 3 of their 14 matches.
