(Photo) England to split coaching roles between Test and white-ball sides

England are set to return to a split-coaching structure for the first time in eight years. Confirmation that England would split the white and red-ball jobs of their men’s teams has come after job descriptions were formally advertised online this week, with appointments to be made only weeks before their first home Test of the northern summer.

Australians Justin Langer and Darren Lehmann are reportedly out of contention to take either of the coaching roles, but Simon Katich has emerged as a strong contender for either role along with South Africans Gary Kirsten and Graham Ford.
