Warne praises England’s new bowling coach

April 12, 2010 at 1:25 pm 4 comments

Shane Warne isn’t one to hold back his opinion on cricket matters. Given all he has achieved in the game though, it is an opinion that is widely respected. So, what are the Australian legend’s views on England’s latest bowling coach David Saker?

Well, he believes that Saker – who succeeds Ottis Gibson in the role – will help England both on and off the pitch. Warne says that he is a “fantastic bowling coach” who will be “excellent for the England dressing room”.

This is a crucial element to being a successful coach after all. It is all very well being a decent coach, but with long tours meaning everyone spends a lot of time together, it is important the coaching staff bring something to the dressing room too.

Speaking specifically about Saker’s character, Warne says he can be “in-your-face at times” and he is “pretty aggressive”. However, the Australian tends to get results and Warne clearly thinks that the ECB have made a wise appointment.

If the last time England had an Australian bowling coach is anything to go by, it should bring the best out of the England bowlers. Troy Cooley – who is now coaching Australia’s attack – was involved in the 2005 Ashes win and produced great performances from the likes of Simon Jones, Steve Harmison and Matthew Hoggard.

England will now be hoping that Saker can do the same with the likes of James Anderson and Stuart Broad. The next Ashes series is this winter after all and England’s Test cricket odds suggest they will struggle.
Clearly England captain Andrew Strauss will hope his bowlers are at the top of their game come the first test.

Meanwhile, in football news, Spain are still favourites in the World Cup 2010 betting.
