The 56-year-old Moody, who is currently working as the Director of Cricket with Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has shown interest in becoming the coach of the Indian team in the past. He had previously applied for the Indian coach position thrice, including in 2017 and 2019, but his name was never considered.
Important role in removing Warner from captaincy
Shastri’s tenure as India’s head coach is only till the T20 World Cup and the 59-year-old former cricketer has already made it clear that he will not ask for an extension. The Board of Cricket in India (BCCI) is now looking for a new coach. Moody was the head coach of Sunrisers from 2013 to 2019 and in the meantime the franchise also won its only title in 2016. Moody’s compatriot David Warner was then the captain of Sunrisers.
According to the report, Moody’s aspiration to become the coach of the Indian team played a key role in removing Warner from the captaincy earlier this season and then dropping him from the playing XI for the last few matches. “It is understood that the Sunrisers owners have considerable influence in the BCCI and they can explain the decision to keep Warner out of the last few matches and give opportunities to the youngsters,” it said. “Warner has also been approached by several other IPL franchises, who are shocked by the decision to drop this stalwart batsman from the playing XI,” the report said.
