England coach Peter Moores has been sacked after former captain Andrew Strauss was appointed as the new national director of cricket.

Moores was relieved of his duties following a dismal World Cup and the drawn Test series with West Indies.

The 52-year-old, who also coached England from 2007 to 2009, said: “I will walk away knowing I’ve given my all.”

Strauss, 38, captained England in 50 of his 100 Test matches, before retiring in August 2012.

The former Middlesex batsman’s role will see him oversee the selection process for the England team, as well as performance and development. The new head coach will also report directly to him.

Assistant coach Paul Farbrace will take charge of the side for the two-Test series against New Zealand, which starts at Lord’s on May 21.

    The English people and most other developed countries do not ‘mek’ sport at these things. Fail to Produce results –You are Fired !!! Leader of a Political Party and lose Elections – You Resign ! Only if Barbados could follow in these footsteps and not only refer to Countries such as the United States and Britain for examples when it suits them, when it is expedient. Shame on Barbados that the Speaker for instance did not resign . If it were Britain or the United States , the Speaker of the house, for bringing the Office into disrepute, would have resigned without hesitation. Even in Trinidad it would have happen but bout hey as long as you is “somebody” , you think that you are above the Law and your Big-Up friends and their blind supporters make excuses for you and try to get you off because you are no Leper , you are their friend or you belong to their fraternity of whatever ilk. Crap !!! Crap ! Crap and more Crap. Crap over Crap ! Crap under Crap ! Crap next to Crap ! Crap supporting Crap ! Crap all up in Crap ! That is what it is.
