(Photo) Split coaching prevented McDonald from considering England job

Australia’s new head coach Andrew McDonald has questioned England’s decision to split the coaching role between red and white-ball cricket. Last week, the ECB formally kicked off the process to find Chris Silverwood’s replacement by advertising for two new head coaches. England were said to be interested in procuring McDonald’s services before he was confirmed as Justin Langer’s successor.

McDonald revealed the idea of split coaching roles prevented him from considering the job of England’s head coach, reasoning the split can compromise “continuity of messaging”.
