Sri Lanka Cricket ends contract with Tom Moody as Cricket Director

(LANKAPUVATH | COLOMBO) – Sri Lanka Cricket’s Executive Committee has mutually agreed with Mr. Tom Moody, who was functioning as the “Director of Cricket,” to exit from the contract with him, effective immediately.

After a long discussion between Tom Moody and the Sri Lanka Cricket Executive Committee, steps have been taken to cancel the agreement with the consent of both parties.

The Executive Committee of the SLC, after much deliberation, was of the opinion that Tom Moody’s services are no longer required as he was directly reporting to the Technical Advisory Committee, which has ceased to exist now.

According to a recommendation of the Technical Advisory Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket, the Sri Lanka Cricket Executive Committee took steps to appoint Tom Moody as the Director of Sri Lanka Cricket from 01 March 2021.

While Moody’s duty is to report directly to the Cricket Technical Advisory Committee headed by Mr. Aravinda de Silva, everyone is of the opinion that Moody’s services are not needed because the committee does not exist at this time.

Sri Lanka Cricket, while thanking Tom for his contribution to the game of cricket in Sri Lanka during his tenure, wishes him the very best for his future endeavors.

Commenting on this, Tom Moody said, “It is a privilege to work with Sri Lanka Cricket once again and I am proud of what I managed to achieve during my tenure with the guidance of the Technical Advisory Committee.”

Tom Moody was the head coach of the Sri Lankan cricket team when they became the runners-up in the 2007 ODI World Cup.
