England’s bold selection: One thing is certain, we are in for an exciting ride: Michael Vaughan

Michael Vaughan praised Kirsten and his experience in the role, stating that he would have been a good fit for the England job.

He’s taking over England just in time. “They’ve been at their lowest point since the mid-1990s,” he adds.

“He won’t have to do much for us to see a massive improvement, but if it doesn’t happen soon, questions will be raised about his appointment and whether England would have been better off with a safer pair of hands, more experienced, and who knows how to coach in Test cricket.” But one thing is certain: we are in for an interesting ride,” he added.

McCullum’s T20 franchise coaching experience and friendship with skipper Eoin Morgan seemed to make him an ideal choice to coach the white-ball team. While there were reports of McCullum taking over the white-ball duties, he stated that the role did not interest him.
