Amid the coronavirus lockdown, cricketers are busy giving answers to the questions of many curious fans. Earlier, Krunal Pandya, Shreyas Iyer, Smriti Mandhana, Mitchell McClenaghan conducted a Question & Answer session with the fans. Now, Tom Moody also joined the bandwagon. During the session, he came across the question of a fan, who asked him to pick the most underrated cricketer of this decade.

Tom Moody is the former coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad, who helped them in winning their maiden IPL trophy back in 2016. However, he was removed from the team in 2019 post the 12th edition of the cash-rich league. He was replaced by Trevor Bayliss, England’s World Cup-winning coach for IPL 2020. But, at the moment, the chances are quite slim that the tournament might get underway due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

At the moment, when things have come down to a halt and there is nothing left to do for the cricketers as well as coaches and ground staff. Hence, Tom Moody tried to interact with fans by conducting a Question and Answer round-up. And, he came across some tough ones from his followers across the globe.

One fan asked him to pick the most underrated cricketer of the decade. The follower took to his Twitter handle and wrote, “Tell me according to you who is the most underrated cricketer in this decade? #AskTom @TomMoodyCricket.”

Tom Moody responded saying that in his opinion, Ross Taylor, the middle-order batsman from New Zealand is the most underrated cricketer in this decade. He never got the honour and respect for what he has done so far for his team. Moody responded by tweeting– “Ross Taylor doesn’t get the recognition he deserves imo.”

There is no doubt over the fact that Ross Taylor is a consistent performer with the bat for Black Caps across all the formats since his debut. He has mustered 7,238 runs in Tests, 8574 runs in ODIs and 1909 runs in  T20Is. Moreover, he did exceedingly well in the recently-concluded ODI and T20I series against India. Despite being a consistent performer for the Kiwis, the right-hander never got the recognition that he deserves in international cricket.
