After almost eight years, England and Wales Cricket Board have decided to opt for split coaching roles.

They are inviting applications for two new head coaches for the men’s Test and ODI and T20I teams for the upcoming season for England Cricket Team.

This decision was in the waiting since the appointment of Rob Key as managing director of the England Men’s cricket team.

England have so far fared badly in their cricketing season, failing to win even a single Test match out of the eight that they have played so far.

Andy Flower and Ashley Giles had a hot and cold relationship when the split coaching experiment started in 2012.

Chris Silverwood was sacked with immediate effect when England lost the Ashes series.

England have a very punishing 12 months ahead of them and thus the need to find a head coach for both the positions is of the utmost importance for the ECB.

Some of the contenders that have found favour for the position of the head coach are Graham Ford, Gary Kirsten, Paul Collingwood, Simon Katich and Tom Moody.

Graham Ford will most likely become the head coach of the Test team.

The position for the limited-overs head coach is still under wraps.
