A lot has changed in England cricket after Joe Root left the Test captaincy. In this episode, there is now talk about the limited overs team and the different coaches of the test team. Now another news has arrived in this episode. Current Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) head coach Brendon McCullum is the leading candidate for the England cue ball head coach job, while former South African starter Gary Kirsten is one of the favorites to take over. in the Tests. After taking over as managing director of the team, Rob has been given the responsibility of coaching different formats of cricket in the country.
Mirror.co.uk stated that McCullum and Gary Kirsten are on the list, as their aim is to coach different teams, especially the test team, which has underperformed over the years. Recently the series was lost in the Ashes and the Caribbean. If England appoint separate coaches for the test and cue ball teams, they will become the only country to split the role.
The ECB’s new Cricket Managing Director Robb has approached a number of potential candidates in recent days, with former South Africa and India coach Gary Kirsten speaking specifically about the trial role, according to the report. McCullum, 40, is best remembered for his exploits on the white ball, particularly in T20I, where he played 71 games for New Zealand, scoring more than 2,100 runs with a strike rate of more than 136.
Robb recently said he had sought advice from England captain Eoin Morgan on coaches after the Test team’s only victory in 17 Tests. Rob said: I have also talked to Eoin about red ball cricket and he is at the top of his game in cue ball cricket. He (Morgan) knows what he wants and knows a lot of coaches.
