I suppose it isn’t too surprising that a new coach wants to have his closest allies by his side, but the axing of Matthew Maynard and prompt replacement of Andy Flower did show one thing. Peter Moores, the new England coach, will do things his way. Flower’s been working with Moores at the Academy, I think on a part-time basis due to his commitments with Essex. And as ever, a new appointment brings a flurry of quotes from people saying how amazing and wonderful Flower is, a blooming marvellous batting coach, etc.
Who will be next on Moores’ culling list?
