Moody is also a well known trainer and commentator.

In a question and solution consultation, the 54-year-old also picked Chennai Super Kings as his favorite IPL workforce and MS Dhoni favorite captain.

"Tough call, but I would be more than happy with @davidwarner31 and @ImRo45 (Rohit)," Moody wrote on his twitter page when asked about the most productive opening batsmen in T20s.

Tendulkar's 241 against Australia maximum disciplined innings: Lara

Sachin has played some amazing innings all over his occupation but none with more discipline and determination like his 241* against Australia on the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG)," Lara said in an Instagram post. In 2004, Tendulkar scored 241* off 436 balls against Australia and this enabled India to post a mammoth ranking of 705/7 of their first innings.

A turn side to Corona: Longer careers for busy cricketers

The coronavirus-enforced damage has given India’s cricketers the opportunity to spend high quality time with family members and put the pause button on their irritating schedules. For many of them, this damage might well develop into a blessing in disguise. Some of the senior gamers, and the ones dealing with injuries, may even end up playing longer because of this, feel experts and physiotherapists.

There is abundance of cricketing talent in India but amongst the emerging ones, Moody feels Shubman Gill "sticks out". Gill has played two ODIs for India and has also made the Test workforce but is yet to get a recreation.

Moody, who has coached more than one IPL groups, believes New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson is blessed with the most productive cricketing brain and Ravindra Jadeja is his favorite Indian fielder.

Asked about his favorite Indian cricketer, Moody picked skipper Virat Kohli.
