Former Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne may be among the first cricketers in Australia. He played his last match for the national team in 2007. The legendary cricketer has expressed his desire to coach England this time.
England lost the last Ashes series 4-0 to Australia. Ashley Giles was removed from the post of managing director. Head coach Chris Silverwood has to step down and Graham Thorpe has to step down as batting coach.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has made major changes to the Ashes squad for the upcoming series against the West Indies. The ECB has appointed Paul Collingwood as the interim coach for the tour.
Turning around on the cricket field, the ECB made such a change. England have won just four of their last 15 Test matches last year. In this situation, Warne has expressed interest in becoming the coach of England.
"I want to be the coach of England," he said. Now is the ideal time to be their coach. "
The Aussie spin legend added, "I think I'll do well, there's a lot to do with them. There are a lot of good quality players in England, a lot of depth in the team. But some basic things need to be fixed. For example, no more no-ball can be done. Can't go without extra catches. There are good players in the team, they just can't perform properly. '
Rumor has it that Justin Langer is in the running to be the new England coach without the responsibility of Australia.
Australia won the T20 World Cup for the first time under this anchor. Ajira then defeated England in the Ashes. Even then, Australia could not retain Langer as coach. So Warne has criticized his country's board.
"Cricket Australia's role in Langer's departure is a shame," he said. Winning the Ashes after the World Cup, could not have been a better result for us. But Langer did not get anyone's support. I haven't seen the Australian captain or any other player say anything in support of Langer. To me, Langer's departure seems like a big disappointment. "
Shane Warne added: "Cricket Australia has not been able to say directly why it is not renewing its contract. But they will wait until the end of summer. See who the best candidate is and if Langer is still the best candidate, pick him up again! If I had been in England, I would have jumped on him.
