"Workhorse" Giles to excel at coaching

Former England captain Michael Vaughan praises former spinner Ashley Giles' appointment as England's ODI and T20 team coach. He writes in the Telegraph that the fact that he has been an honest "workhorse" as a player would help him as a coach.

The fact he had to work hard for everything he achieved as player helps him as a coach. He knows how difficult it is to be an international cricketer. He had to graft for every wicket and run. He had to go to his room at night and think about his game, and analyse opponents.

I have not known a player get on better with KP as well. That will help in the next couple of years. He knows how to communicate to Kevin.
