Peter Moores didn’t have a good time during his first tenure as England coach. He had had clashes with Michael Vaughan and Kevin Pietersen and eventually, he had ended up being axed from his position by ECB.
But, the 51 years old is back again. He has been given one more chance and everyone is pretty excited to see how his tuning with the current England skipper Alastair Cook turns out to be.
Vaughan reckons that Moores’ second tenure is going to be pretty successful as he and Cook are different sorts of people and thus, would complement each other perfectly well.
According to Vaughan who is considered as one of the most successful England captains, the reason behind the dispute between him and Moores was the willingness of both to control the team. But, that’s not going to happen in the current scenario as Cook is someone who is pretty happy to take the back seat.
Speaking in one of his interviews, Vaughan said, “If you want to form a successful group, you need to get in the personalities who can gel with each other pretty well. If you get in two similar sorts of personalities; the clashes are bound to happen”
“I reckon Peter and Alastair would be able to form a good combination because they would complement each other. There are certain things which Peter would control and Alastair would take care of other issues. So, I believe the tuning between them would be fine.”
Moores was initially not in the race to take over as England coach after the sacking of Andy Flower a couple of months ago. It was Ashley Giles whose name was coming forward, but, surprisingly, ECB decided to give Moores a go again.
