Hopefully and probably, the problems that Pietersen brought would not be encountered again. They were, themselves, without precedent.

Pietersen isn't the only issue, Strauss has already declared Cook and Morgan as captains for the summer, will the coach be able to change this if he wants?

I'm sure that even if he couldn't, and he really wanted the job, it wouldn't matter at all.

Dizzy was one of my favourite bowlers. Moved the ball both ways and was unfortunate not to play much more cricket. His last Ashes was a real shame because he was nowhere near his best. At least he made a double in his last test as nightwatchman!!!

Would actually be a little disappointed if he was appointed. Mainly because of the circus going on at present.

The circus is being wound down.

Exactly.

Gillespie is reportedly keen to take the job. Don't know why people keep trying to turn a positive story into a negative one.

(Although I have an inkling.)

Good to see you change your tune on this.

You were previously in denial that the ECB were a circus.

Not exactly. Things have been handled very badly although actual decisions were right. Public relations disaster.

This essentially comes down to the questions of accountability and partitioning of responsibility.

The ECB seem to want to get the best of both worlds (as they have for as long as I can remember) - the board and selectors determine the team and captain, but the coach is accountable for their performance, whether or not they agreed with or had any influence over who was selected. It often seems to be the case that as far as the ECB is concerned, the reason for England performing poorly is:

- It's the players' fault;
- If that isn't sufficient, it's the coach's fault;
- If that isn't sufficient, it's the media's fault;
- If that isn't sufficient, it's the counties' fault.

The role of the selectors and the ECB is apparently beyond reproach, even when we get humiliated.

I would be happy to have Farbrace as the coach. 2nd choice Bayliss.

What's Dav Whatmore up to?

He'd have been my choice instead of Moores.

So much for needing international experience.

I don't really know much about him, but his record looks pretty good. Sounds like he knows what he's doing when it comes to one day cricket, so that's a positive.

The question is why is Gillespie suddenly out of favour when it looked a done deal?

Despite more money perhaps he didn't fancy a demotion?

I'm not sure it was a done deal as such, Bayliss may just have impressed more, maybe Gillespie wanted to wait longer before taking over, or Gillespie was just second choice all along but his being interviewed was a bigger story. Could be all sort of reasons.
