‘It’s not so much the people, and it’s not so much the players – it’s the infrastructure that we need to review’

Reforming Sri Lanka’s domestic structure is among Tom Moody‘s priorities in his new role as director of cricket, and a fresh plan for first-class structure may be revealed over the next few months. So said Moody in his first press conference in his new role, having just spent three weeks observing and reviewing cricket in Sri Lanka.

Moody was hired for a three-year stint as director by a technical advisory committee led by Aravinda de Silva at the start of March, and has a wide-ranging purview, spanning both the women’s and men’s game, as well as domestic and international cricket.

Bridging the gap between the men’s domestic tournaments and international cricket, however, appears to be among his first priorities. Moody said there’s already a plan being drawn up to retool first-class cricket on the island.
