Playing only his seventh T20, Melbourne Renegades fast bowler David Moody picked career-best bowling figures of 4-0-16-3 to play a key role in bundling out Hobart Hurricanes for 122 in 18 overs in Big Bash League 2022-23 Match 14 at the Bellerive Oval.

During the innings break, less did Moody would’ve thought of his impressive show in the first innings would end up in a losing cause by the end of the match. With Hurricanes registering a 8-run victory in spite of playing without the likes of stalwarts Matthew Wade and Ben McDermott, they have successfully defended the fourth-lowest innings total (highest at this venue) in the history of the Big Bash.

Renegades, who have let gone of an opportunity to win four matches in a row, needed 11 runs in the last over with only one wicket in hand. Coming in to bat at No. 8 in the 12th over, Will Sutherland (40) did his best to chase down the target but it wasn’t to be as his dismissal in the final over resulted in a loss.

Moody, meanwhile, was left stranded at the non-striker’s end after not playing even a single ball due to his batting position of No. 11. Although the 27-year old player couldn’t end up on the winning side this evening, he bowled exceedingly well to dismiss the likes of D’Arcy Short (5), Caleb Jewell (8) and Shadab Khan (14).

Tom Moody son name

For those who are confusing David Moody to be the son of former Australia all-rounder Tom Moody, it is worth mentioning that it is not the case. Having said that, David is Tom’s nephew (son of his brother).

Tom, who has two children in son Jackson Moody and daughter Sarah Moody with wife Helen Moody, has transformed into a renowned coach since his international retirement. However, neither of Jackson or Sarah play representative cricket.

Moody, 27, has picked a total of 130 wickets across 36 first-class matches, 13 List A matches and seven T20s in what is almost an eight-year old professional career now.
