Reaction: England Give Peter One Moores Chance
Peter Moores has today been appointed as England's new head coach. Here is some of the reaction to the move from the ECB - be warned, it's not all positive.
Former England cricketers Jonathan Agnew and Alan Mullally are not too impressed with the words being used by Peter Moores and his new boss, Paul Downton.
