Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody has picked the moments to remember from the recently concluded ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Tom Moody highlighted Afghanistan’s dominant performances, emphasizing their authority in the marquee tournament.
The Pat Cummins-led team secured their sixth ODI World Cup title by defeating the Rohit Sharma-led team in the final game in Ahmedabad on November 19. The Indian players’ dreams shattered as they failed to secure an ICC trophy drought despite coming close.
Afghanistan Stamped Their Authority In The World Cup – Tom Moody
In a conversation with ESPNCricinfo, Tom Moody acknowledged India’s exceptional run, winning 10 consecutive matches. Moody pointed out that India’s strong performances made them a challenging team to beat in the World Cup.
“Afghanistan, the way they played and stamped their authority in this World Cup was a wonderful show to watch. The way that India played to win 10 in a row, their dominance was quite extraordinary. We’re all thinking about how can you beat India because they were playing so well.”
The Afghanistan team failed to register a single victory in the ODI World Cup 2019 in England. However, the Hashmatullah Shahidi-led side recorded four victories in the latest edition of the tournament, defeating top-ranked teams like England and Pakistan.
Glenn Maxwell’s 200 Is Just Extraordinary – Tom Moody
Tom Moody lauded Glenn Maxwell for his remarkable double century against Afghanistan, describing it as an extraordinary feat. Moody expressed doubt about witnessing it again. He acknowledged Virat Kohli’s 50th ODI hundred as an extraordinary accomplishment.
“Glenn Maxwell’s 200 is just extraordinary. You don’t expect these things to happen again, but it’d be very unlikely we see innings like that again. And finally, to see Virat Kohli reach 50 hundreds is just something that is an extraordinary achievement by an individual,” Moody told ESPNCricinfo.
Glenn Maxwell scored an unbeaten 201 runs off 128 deliveries, including 21 fours and 10 sixes, during the group stage match against Afghanistan. Maxwell rescued the team from a challenging situation of 91/7 by adding an unbeaten 202-run stand with Pat Cummins.
