Moody has created a reputation as one of the planet’s pre-eminent coaches in level having led Sri Lanka to the 2007 ICC Men’s World Cup recently coaching and last Sunrisers Hyderabad for their first Premier League name in 2016.
Greenway is a five-time Ashes winner and was a part of the England squads that won Women’s World T20 and the ICC Women’s World Cup at 2009.
The 34-year-old is looking forward to developing homegrown talent as well as working together with the world’s greatest players and has functioned since the head coach of Kent Women.

“I feel extremely blessed to get this opportunity. It is a chance to work with the best players in the nation and the very best players from all over the Earth, that is truly exciting.
“The Hundred will provide a platform for national players to step forward and make their case for choice on a point that’s as close to international cricket as you can get.”
Moody is your last coaching appointment for its eight men’s teams in The Hundred, following the announcements 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 listing comprises the coaches of the 2011 and the four IPL champions and 2015 ICC Men’s World Cup winners.
Moody considers the challenge of this format that is 100-ball was a significant drawcard for the planet’s finest coaches.
Moody said:”Anything that is new and is innovative has a automatic appeal. It presents new challenges to check yourself from in a environment. To be part of the early stages of a tournament in which you have the chance to set the tone round what the format may look like would be a special opportunity.
“Drawing on the understanding of the regional coaches will be critical. That chance works the other way in which, as head coaches, we can pass on our knowledge from different tournaments, which will hopefully be beneficial for all of the assistant coaches”

While Tom finishes the exciting men’s head coach list lydia is another up-and-coming English trainer.
