Former Test batsman Paul Collingwood has reportedly shown interest to become England's next team director, a post that was left vacant following the resignation of their coach of five years, Andy Flower. Collingwood recently led the Scotland team as coach throughout the Cricket World Cup qualifying tournament in New Zealand that saw them finish as champions. "I've got a year left on my [Durham] contract and I'll be seeing that out with them and I'll see what happens after the season," said Collingwood.

"Certainly I've enjoyed the coaching side of things [with Scotland] and if I can help England in any way in the future, I'm sure I'll be more than willing to do it," Collingwood added.

South African Mickey Arthur, who was sacked from the role of Australian coach last year following their 4-0 Test series loss in India, has also expressed his desire to compete for the job.
