IPL 6 Deccan Chargers renamed Sun Risers with Kris Srikkanth and VVS Laxman as mentors

Indian Premier League (IPL) team, owned by the Sun Network, will be formally inaugurated in Hyderabad this Thursday. The Chennai-based media conglomerate, which acquired the team for Rs 425 crore, will unveil its logo and team name at a grand gala function. The team will be called Sun Risers.

The team has roped in Kris Srikkanth and VVS Laxman as mentors. Their exact roles in the team have not been defined by the team management, but some team officials say the two former India cricketers will have roles similar to that of Anil Kumble’s in Royal Challengers Bangalore.

VVS Laxman, who retired from international cricket recently, is unlikely to play for the Sun Risers although he has played play a couple of matches for Hyderabad in the Ranji Trophy this season. Laxman has previously represented Deccan Chargers and Kochi Tuskers Kerala. Interestingly both teams are nonexistent now. Meanwhile, a Sun official disclosed that Tom Moody will coach of the team. The former Australian all-rounder had also coached the Chandigarh-based Kings XI Punjab. Moody will be present at Thursday’s function.

The Sun Network took over the Hyderabad franchise Deccan Chargers after BCCI, the Board of Control for Cricket in India terminated its contract. The Sun Risers has retained all the Deccan players, including overseas players like Kumar Sangakkara, Dale Steyn JP Duminy and Cameroon White.
