Lydia Greenway and Tom Moody Are Named as the head Mentor of This Oval-based Group for Your Hundred.
Moody has created a reputation among the world coaches in domestic and international level having led Sri Lanka into the 2007 ICC Men’s World Cup more lately training and closing Sunrisers Hyderabad for their very first Indian Premier League title in 2016.
Greenway is a five-time Ashes winner and has been a part of the England squads that won the World Cup and Women’s World T20 of the ICC Women .
The 34-year-old has functioned as the head coach of Kent Women and is excited about working together with all the world’s greatest players as well as developing homegrown talent.
Greenway said:”Coaching is something that I’m hugely enthused about. That’s special, when you’re working with players that want to acquire better and improve all the moment.
“I feel extremely blessed to have this opportunity. It’s a chance to work from all over the world, which is actually exciting.
“The Hundred will offer a stage for domestic players to step forward and make their case for selection on a stage that is as near international cricket as it is possible to get.”
Moody is your last coaching appointment for its eight men’s teams in The Hundred, after the statements of Stephen Fleming (Nottingham), Mahela Jayawardena (Southampton), Simon Katich (Manchester), Gary Kirsten (Cardiff), Darren Lehmann (Leeds), Andrew McDonald (Birmingham) and Shane Warne (Lord’s).
The list contains the coaches of the four IPL winners along with the 2011 and 2015 ICC Men’s World Cup winners.
Moody considers the format’s new struggle was a major drawcard for the planet’s best coaches.
Moody said:”Anything that’s new and is innovative has an automatic appeal. From a coaching perspective it poses new challenges to test yourself from in a environment. In which you have the chance to place the tone to be part of the first stages of a tournament is a exceptional prospect.
“Drawing on the understanding of the local coaches will be critical. That chance works another way in which, as head trainers, we can pass our knowledge from different tournaments, which will hopefully be beneficial for all the assistant coaches”
Sanjay Patel, managing director of The Hundred stated,”I’m thrilled to welcome two exciting coaches into The Hundred. While Tom finishes the hugely men’s head coach checklist, lydia is another English coach. It’s a line-up bursting with quality trainers who have won white-ball championships throughout the world.”
The Hundred is a new 100-ball format that’s set to launch next summer with the men’s and women’s contests to run over a five-week period.
The contest is set to attract a number of the world’s finest players and will be aired live on Sky Sports. It will feature eight city-based nightclubs, from Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Birmingham, Cardiff, Southampton and two at London (Lord’s and the Oval).
