Farbrace has no cause for guilt - Moores
Peter Moores has dismissed suggestions that his new assistant, Paul Farbrace, should feel morally bound to sit out the Sri Lanka tour this summer because England poached him from their opponents so soon after he took charge.
Farbrace had been in charge of Sri Lanka for barely 3 months, a period in which they won the World T20 in Bangladesh, before England persuaded him to abandon a job he had only just begun and join Moores in a new-look England coaching structure.
Former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkaka, conceded that the circumstances were "not nice" when he joined Durham this week for a brief stint ahead of the Sri Lanka tour, but stopped short of criticising Farbrace, who he maintained was "a top guy and a wonderful coach".
