A Very Capel-able Choice

The announcement of David Capel as England's second Assistant Coach may not be quite the 'big name' appointment we were (sort-of) promised; but I still think it is a good move.

Capel brings with him some of the depth of experience that both Head of Performance Paul Shaw, and fellow Assistant Coach Carl Crowe, lack - having played 15 tests and 23 ODIs during a long First Class career; followed by an extended spell as head coach at Northants.

I also think it is very important that Capel is essentially an "outside" appointment. He is someone who will bring something new to the camp and perhaps shake things up just a little.

Whether he can do so in time for The Ashes is another question - England fans need to be patient with the new regime. But longer term, I think the future looks a little brighter with Capel in it!
