Good on you Duncan

Posted by Martin on April 20, 2007

Despite vocalising my support for the removal of England’s cricket coach yesterday, I would also like to add my voice to those who thank Duncan Fletcher for his great work lifting English cricket off the scrapheap in the last eight years. Winning the Ashes in 2005 was one of the great British sporting achievements of the last 30 years, and he should leave the job now with his head held high. As expected, Fletcher parts company with the team after the final game of the World Cup tomorrow.

The question now is over who will replace him. Tom Moody has been mentioned, and would be an excellent choice. I am quite keen on an Englishman though – and perhaps a younger man, with more creative ideas. Perhaps Academy Director Peter Moores, the expected caretaker manager, will grow naturally into the role. To early to say though – for now, so long Duncan, and thanks for the memories…
