Under Moody’s guidance between 2013 and 2019, Sunrisers Hyderabad reached the playoffs five times while becoming champions in 2016.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has written from its Twitter account, ‘Tom Moody’s tenure with us is coming to an end. We at SRH thank them for their services. It has been a wonderful journey with him for the last few years. We wish him all the best for his future.
