Former cricketer Tom Moody on Saturday picked India’s Rohit Sharma and fellow Australian David Warner as best opening batsmen in T20 cricket.


Moody is also a well-known coach and commentator. In a question and answer session, the 54-year-old also named Michael Jordan as his favourite sportsperson.

“Tough call, but I would be more than happy with @davidwarner31 and @ImRo45 (Rohit),” Moody wrote on his Twitter handle when asked about the two best opening batsmen in T20s.



Cricketing talent is abundant in India, but amongst the emerging ones, Moody feels Shubman Gill “stands out”. Gill has played two ODIs for India and has also been picked in the Test squad but is yet to get a game.

Moody, who has coached multiple IPL teams, believes former New Zealand skipper Ross Taylor is the most underrated cricketer in this decade.

“Ross Taylor doesn’t get the recognition he deserves,” tweeted the former Aussie all-rounder.



Asked about his favourite cricketer in the current Indian team, Moody named Virat Kohli.
