“Gary Kirsten would be a great candidate as well, but if you want one person to come in with a huge point to prove, then it is Langer. He is an Ashes winner, T20 World Cup winner, and knows everything about playing in Australia. Just go get him. This England Test team needs some tough love. Joe Root needs a forceful coach next to him too,” Vaughan wrote in his coloumn in The Telegraph.

Despite considering the tough times Silverwood went through, Vaughan blamed him for the Ashes loss. He added: “Of all the England’s coaches, Chris Silverwood was given a terrible hand in Covid times with restrictions on all the players. Testing every other day and bubbles must have been hard, but ultimately he made some glaring mistakes this winter. The basics were not applied, and that is the responsibility of the coaching team. It is not a great look for another English coach to have failed.”
It would now be interesting to see who becomes England’s next coach.
