THE Caribbean Premier League (CPL) recently announced that former Australia International, Tom Moody, has joined its ranks as director of cricket.

Moody has vast experience at the top level of the game, having represented Australia, Warwickshire, Western Australia and Worcestershire as a player, before turning his attention to coaching, commentary and cricket administration.

"From a purely cricket perspective, CPL has set the bar high from its inaugural year and I'm excited by the challenge of helping to continue to improve and deliver the highest possible standards for the fans, the players and everyone associated with the tournament," Moody said.

Commenting on the appointment, Caribbean Premier League CEO, Damien O'Donohoe, said: "We are delighted that Tom Moody has joined the team at CPL. As the tournament progresses, we will strive to maintain our status as a first-class cricket tournament, attracting the best players and coaches from around the world," he said.

Following his retirement from the game in 2001, Moody became president of the Australian Cricketers' Association and coach, then director of cricket at Worcestershire. In 2005, he was appointed as Sri Lanka's coach, guiding the team to the World Cup final in April 2007, before returning home to coach Western Australia. He is currently coach for IPL franchise, Sunrisers Hyderabad.
