The Scorchers are captained by Simon Katich after the inaugural captain Marcus North resigned in November 2012. Mickey Arthur was originally appointed coach, but quit before the beginning of the 2011–12 season after he was appointed coach of the Australian cricket team. He was replaced by his former assistant, Lachlan Stevens. Justin Langer replaced Stevens in November 2012.
