Newly appointed England coach, Peter Moores said that he is looking forward to work with assistant coach, Paul Farbrace. Farbrace was the coach of Sri Lanka, before he quit the job to take over as the assistant coach of England.

Moores said, “I was appointed in the job and was asked who do I like. Paul [Fabrace] was one of the names against two or three others that came up. I thought about it, had a chat with Paul and it became pretty obvious that was going to be the right fit for me”, as reported by ECB website.

He continued, “He’s got great international experience as an assistant coach and also as a head coach, so he’s seen quite a lot. We get on well; we come from the same philosophy on the game, which is keeping things simple and getting out there and playing. I’m really looking forward to working with him and he’ll be a great support.”

Moores on coaching England setup, “There’s not really much time to waste and I wouldn’t want to anyway. The lads are going and other people are around so it’s a good opportunity to be there. We’re coaches; we want to get stuck in and see what’s going on. You want to start moving things forward because there’s a game coming up on May 9 so it’s a quick turnaround.”

Moores wants England to play with no fear. He opined, “You make mistakes as you go along as a coach,” Moores said. “Success gives you enthusiasm to go and make some more mistakes. If you don’t push the edge of stuff, then you never make a mistake, but you are pretty safe and pretty bland.

He also said, “If you want to take a few risks now and then, sometimes it isn’t always going to be perfect. You learn to balance that out a bit and have some fun.”

Moores on his successful stint as the coach of Lancashire,”It has been great fun. Obviously we have had some real highs and some lows. I feel very privileged to have been part of what has been a huge period of change and evolution.

He concluded by saying, “In that time we have managed to win the first division, go down and win the second division. Mainly we have developed a lot of young Lancashire players who have come through and it is exciting for the club. Hopefully they will go on and have great careers and keep the club in a healthy state.”
