Profile

The man who won a second chance. Five years after he was sacked as England coach, Peter Moores won another opportunity to make a success of the role when he was reappointed in April 2014. It was reward not just for his success at domestic level - Moores oversaw Lancashire's first outright Championship success in 77 years in 2011 - but for his dignified silence following his sacking at the end of 2008.
