Trevor Penney hired to assist Tom Moody

Tom Moody selected his former Warwickshire team-mate Trevor Penney to assist him coach Sri Lanka until after the 2007 World Cup. The Zimbabwean born 37 year old Warwickshire batsman has done a fair bit of coaching over the years in his home country during English winters. But his most recent claim to fame is that he was one of the expert substitute fielders (other than Gary Pratt) used by Duncan Fletcher during the Ashes (in addition to being England's fielding coach this season).

Greg Chappell has Ian Frazer to assist him and the Indian fielding has been pretty good in Zimbabwe, but should India be thinking of hiring Gary Pratt as the fielding coach? And say India do that and Pratt relocates to India, would Pratt be allowed to field as a substitute for England when they tour India later this season? (Would Penney be allowed to field for England when they tour Sri Lanka?) I know the answer for that, but still.. wouldn't it be great from Fletcher's point of view?

What would be a better sight would be to field Pratt as an Indian substitute when Aussie tour next time ;-)

If Ricky gets runout one more time by Pratt, he would gift his entire kit (he gave his boots after the Ashes) to Pratt and retire :)
