ECB orders inquest into Ashes whitewash
Saturday 06 January 2007
Following England's Ashes whitewash, the England and Wales Cricket Board chief executive David Collier has initiated a "comprehensive review" of what went wrong in Australia.
The ECB's director of England cricket, John Carr, will report back next month, ahead of the World Cup, and Collier said: "This review will be comprehensive and broad-ranging with the objective of regaining the Ashes in 2009 and significantly improving England's results in one-day cricket."
An ECB statement read: "The ECB directors present in Sydney met on 4 January to consider a proposal for a comprehensive review of the process, programme and structure of Team England. The board will now meet formally to agree the process and composition of the review team."
