The Lancashire chief Peter Moores has been confirmed as the new head coach of the England cricket team for the second time, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced.

Moores joined Lancashire in February 2009, and guided Sussex to the County Championship title in 2003.

Moores gets excited to returns as England coach, said: "I am very excited about the prospect of returning to a role I have done before and to building a strong relationship with Alastair Cook and the rest of the players and staff. In any time of change there comes opportunity and this is one I can’t wait to get stuck into."

Moores, 51, was in charge of the national side for two years between 2007-09, but was sacked following a dispute with Kevin Pietersen.

Moores first match as a coach will be a ODI against Scotland on 9 May, before limited-overs and Test series against Sri Lanka, starting on 20th May.
