Under unusual circumstances, two of the greatest teams in history, England and Australia, are without a head coach. England has not been in the best of forms in recent times. Australia, on the other hand, has won the 20-20 World Cup, the Ashes, and regained the number one Test spot in the world rankings in the past few months.

Former Australian player Shane Warne has expressed his interest in becoming England’s next head coach. Paul Collingwood is currently serving as interim head coach for England after ECB sacked former coach Chris Silverwood. Meanwhile, Warne said England have a good team and just need to make some basic adjustments, adding that he feels he can do a good job with the team.

“I’d like to do it, it’s a great time to be England coach. I think I’d do a pretty good job, there’s a lot to work with. There are so many good players in England and a lot of depth, but you’ve got to get some of the basics right. You can’t bowl no-balls and drop so many catches, but you’ve got the players, they’re just not performing,” Warne said on the Sky Sports Cricket Podcast.

The leg spinner also commented on the Justin Langer-Cricket Australia situation. He said that CA was ‘disgraceful’ in how they handled the entire situation. He was also upset with the players for not standing up for the Ashes-winning coach. Notably, Justin Langer resigned as Australia coach after an alleged disagreement with some senior player.

“Cricket Australia was disgraceful in the way they handled it. Winning an Ashes series and a World Cup, it doesn’t get much bigger than that. But [Langer] was a dead man walking. When I didn’t hear the captain or any other players sticking up for him, saying he was fantastic, I found that really disappointing.”

CA, according to Warne, should have been more forthright in its communication. He emphasized that if they wanted to consider alternative possibilities, they should have been open about it.
