Farbrace deserves a fair amount of credit for the way England are playing. He really improved Sri Lanka as an ODI outfit when he was coach and seems to be doing the same with England. I wouldn't be surprised if he was offered a job elsewhere soon. Hopefully he'll stay with England as his knowledge of the county game will be important with Bayliss having little experience in England.

Does he? How do we know?

It could easily be coincidence.

It was his idea to put Stokes at six. Also, if Moores got the blame when everything went wrong, it's only fair to praise Farbrace when things are going right.

Perhaps it's not right that Moores took all the blame, though.

Not sure where Stokes bats in the middle order is all that significant.

Odi cricket perhaps Farbrace > Moores, in tests can't really call it. England do seemed to have played with a bit more fun since Moores left. Perhaps easier to play with freedom when not worrying about the angle your bat comes down to the 3rd decimal place.

Farbrace has done a great job of rejuvenating an England side that were a complete shambles. They look like they are enjoying playing cricket again, whereas under Moores they often looked like they either didn't care or were just completely fed up.

Player changes have also helped.

Could have been Strauss influence. The ODI team could also be benefiting from having zero members of the "old guard" in the team.

How they "look" is probably little to do with whoever is the coach.

In just over a month as caretaker coach we have seen the best test performance for 3 years and arguably the two best ODI batting performances ever. Only the most soft-headed observer could fail to give Farbrace a lot of credit for this.
