Alastair Cook Relaxed Over England Coach 'Limbo'
England captain Alastair Cook said the ongoing uncertainty over the identity of the team's next permanent coach would not bother him so long as his side kept winning.
As reports emerged yesterday that Australia's Trevor Bayliss had emerged as the front-runner to replace the sacked Peter Moores as England coach rather than compatriot Jason Gillespie, the long-time favourite, Cook's men were completing a stunning 124-run win in the first Test against New Zealand at Lord's.
This match was a triumph for Cook who, having ended his two-year wait for a Test century against the West Indies in Barbados earlier this month, made 162 -- his first Test ton on home soil since 2013 -- in England's second innings at Lord's.
