Gilchrist supports two captains

Adam Gilchrist has backed England’s decision to appoint Paul Collingwood as captain of one-day cricket and Michael Vaughan as the captain of Test cricket.

Vaughan resigned the one-day captaincy following the Test series against West Indies with the ECB appointing Collingwood as his successor.

Gilchrist had the following to say on the appointment “I do not think there is anything to be fearful of in dual captaincy. I do not see there is any reason why that should compromise what both teams are trying to achieve.”

Gilchrist went onto say “He is a smart guy and, if anything, it will enhance his attentiveness to what is going on around him and his endeavour to learn from Michael Vaughan. That will only help benefit the one-day set-up.”
