Former Australia batsman Tom Moody has been named Director of Cricket for the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Moody has also expressed his interest in applying for the England head coach position, which became vacant when Andy Flower resigned at the end of the national team’s disastrous tour of Australia.

“It’s a real honour to be asked to take on the Director of Cricket role for the Caribbean Premier League,” Moody said. “The tournament burst onto the scene last year and produced some outstanding action and entertainment.

“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.”

Speaking about Moody’s appointment, CPL 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.  Having played and coached at the highest level, Tom has the ideal qualifications to ensure that all aspects of CPL’s cricket output are of the highest international standards.”
