9. Peter Moores
A regular English county player, Moores is quite famous for his role as the coach of the English cricket team. He started the second innings of his life by becoming the coach of Sussex and led the team to two county championship titles. He then succeeded Duncan Fletcher as the coach of the England’s national team. Under his leadership, England cherished a remarkable victory in the ODI series against India in 2007 and against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka in 2007 only.
He then made a successful stint while England won the test series on its tour to New Zealand and also as a host against the same team. England also defeated South Africa by playing as hosts in the ODI series. Finally his stint with England came to an end following his row with Kevin Pietersen. He made a comeback to coach the team in 2014 but this time, did not have the same luck and was sacked again 2015. However, he proved to be a great coach for England, especially in the limited-over formats.
