Its not only the coach, its also the players that make a team. The interviewer was very smart to ask question about coach-captain coexistence. I was going to open a thread on that but it seemed fair to punch it in here. Recent past the relation between coach and captain has become a major enigma for top cricketing nations. The closest example is the Saurav-Chappel story. If you just google you will find about 50-60 hits about this topic which all will be worth reading. Also dont forget Brian Charles Lara - Bennett King conglomeration. Note that most of these cases cost the career for both parties involved. I hope Ash-Siddons pairing goes beyond Ponting-Buchanan or Jayawerdene-Moddy pairs.
Life is short, have a six pack.
