Kevin Pietersen am winning again!
Seemed to be a decent man for the job
Once team unity collapses that badly, there's no way back for a coach. He'll continue to have a successful coaching career elsewhere, but he absolutely needed to go. No way he could have rebuilt this England side after such a catastrophic tour.
In fact it generally is incredibly harsh. Not much he can do about losing his best no 3, his captain's form and his only viable spin bowler in the space of a few weeks. Think personally I'd have got rid of Gooch, the batsmen have fallen apart since he took over.
We were in disarray, from top to bottom.
