'Andy won't be making decisions behind our backs'
Alastair Cook hopes to create a new partnership with England's restored coach Peter Moores that can be as effective for England as Michael Clarke and Darren Lehmann have been for Australia, and has knocked back suggestions that Andy Flower will remain the power behind the throne.
Moores spoke of using his predecessor Flower as "a sounding board" following his move to a new job with the England and Wales Cricket Board as the technical director of elite coaching, but Cook acknowledged the need to make a "clean break" from the Flower era which ended in a 5-0 Ashes defeat.Continue reading...
