Sydney: Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody has taken a dig at struggling batsman Shane Watson for his shot selection that led to his dismissal on 81 on Day Two of the fourth Test here yesterday.
Watson miscued a pull to be caught by Ravichandran Ashwin off the bowling of pacer Mohammed Shami.
Watson appeared certain to reach his ton, when he got out. Moody then spoke about how an experienced player like him could play such a shot, but also credited Watson for a "good" innings.
"I can't understand, for one minute, why Watson has played that shot, he has worked so hard to get to the point he got to, it wasn't a fluent innings, but you'd have to say it's a good innings given the fact he is reconstructing himself as a Test cricketer," Moody was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.
