Rob Key excited to ‘shape new England era’ after securing managing director role

Rob Key has been announced as the new managing director of England men’s cricket, the first appointment of a new era for the England and Wales Cricket Board. Joe Root became the latest in a series of resignations when he revealed on Friday that he was stepping down as Test captain following a disappointing 12 months of red-ball cricket including a dismal 4-0 defeat in the Ashes. The 31-year-old’s decision expanded a power vacuum at the ECB, with head coach Chris Silverwood, batting coach Graham Thorpe and former managing director of England men’s cricket Ashley Giles losing their jobs over three successive days in February.
