He was a superb young athlete who excelled at Australian rules football before committing to cricket.
He played eight Test matches for Australia between 1989 and 1992, although he had more success with Australia's one-day team, appearing in three World Cups and two finals – 1987 and 1999 – alongside Steve Waugh. He was even more successful when he threw a haggis the distance of 230 feet in 1989.
"Long" Tom Moody, so nicknamed for his 1.99 metre (six foot six inch) height, began his first-class career in the 1985/86 season with Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield and also played in England with Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Captaining WA and Worcester to various trophies, Moody, an aggressive and fast scoring batsman, scored over 20,000 first-class runs and hit 64 centuries; he was also a useful medium pace bowler. His 1,387 List A runs for Worcestershire in 1991 is a record for the county.
In 1994, he along with Tim Curtis set the record for the highest ever partnership for the 3rd wicket in List A cricket history (309*)
Since retirement in 2001, Moody has coached, been an Australian cricketer's representative and for several years held the post of director of cricket with Worcestershire. In May 2005 he was appointed coach of the Sri Lankan national team and he led them to the final of the 2007 world cup before leaving the post.
On 14 May 2007, the WACA announced Moody's appointment as manager and head coach of the Western Warriors for the next three years. He coached Kings XI Punjab for the first season of Indian Premier League. Trevor Penney, England's fielding coach during the 2005 Ashes series and assistant to Moody in Sri Lanka, will join as assistant coach. However Moody announced in March 2010 that he would not seek a new contract after the 2009–2010 season. Under Moody, WA qualified for one final in three seasons, in the KFC Twenty20 Big Bash, in his first season which it lost to Victoria.
In December 2012, it was announced that Moody would coach the new IPL Sunrisers Hyderabad team. Over the course of 2013-2019, Sunrisers Hyderabad have reached the qualifier rounds five times and won the championship in 2016.
Moody's long involvement in the game has been recognised over the recent years with appointments to two significant consultancy roles. The first being appointed as the International Director of Cricket for the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and the second being appointed in 2014 as Director of Cricket with the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League. On 22 September 2017 it was announced that Moody would be appointed as the head coach of the newest team in the Pakistan Super League for the upcoming 2018 season, the Multan Sultans.
In June 2019, he was named as the coach of the Montreal Tigers franchise team for the 2019 Global T20 Canada tournament.
