- Former England batter takes helm at ‘challenging time’
- ECB’s Tom Harrison: ‘His passion and knowledge is outstanding’
Rob Key will begin working on an overhaul of England’s coaching and selection setup after the former Kent captain turned Sky Sports pundit was named as the new director of men’s cricket on Sunday.
Key has replaced Ashley Giles, who was fired after the winter’s calamitous 4-0 Ashes defeat. With no Test captain or permanent head coach in place, or anyone in charge of selection currently, the 42-year-old has a relatively blank canvas to work with.
