- Why Tom Moody Is Better Qualified to Coach India Than Sehwag
It-07-06-17 seems like yesterday now, but it has been nearly 12 years since Tom Moody first applied for an India coach role.Then in 2005, India’s first foreign coach John Wright was going away and there was a desperate search for his successor. A group of powerful senior players like Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar and also Anil Kumble were keen for Moody to take over.
However, they faced an even bigger obstacle in their captain Sourav Ganguly, who wanted a former Australian captain, Greg Chappell to get the role. Ganguly had his way, Chappell came in, shook things up and the rest, as they say, is history.
