Tom Moody has been appointed as the Sri Lanka director of cricket, on Sunday. He has been handed a three-year contract. The 55-year-old is expected to carry out 300 days of ‘Mandatory Assignment’.
The Aussie has a vast experience when it comes to coaching. He was the head coach of the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. And has coached the Sri Lanka team in the past.
Moody was Sri Lanka’s head coach between 2005 and 2007
He was Sri Lanka’s head coach between 2005 and 2007 when Sri Lanka made it to the final of the World Cup in West Indies.
Moody appointed the director of cricket of the Caribbean Premier League, coach and subsequently director of cricket of Sunrisers of Hyderabad and head coach of Western Australia earlier.
Recommendations of the Technical Advisory Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket played an important role to place him in this post. The move comes on back of the recent poor performance against South Africa and England.
