Fast bowler Stuart Broad praises the coaching style of Peter Moores and is delighted that the 51-year-old has been given a second shot at the helm of the England team.

Stuart Broad is delighted to have seen Peter Moores given a second chance in the England hotseat.

Moores, who previously had 18 months in charge of the national team between 2007 and 2009, before leaving following a fallout with then-captain Kevin Pietersen, was appointed as Andy Flower's successor last month.

The 51-year-old has played a key role in the development of Broad's career, handing him his Test debut in 2007, and England's Twenty20 captain is excited to have such a knowledgeable and enthusiastic coach back in the setup.

"I was delighted when he was offered the chance to coach England again," he told Sky Sports News. "I was in the national academy when Mooresy was academy director. He gave me my Test debut and he brought Jimmy Anderson and myself back into the side in New Zealand, which quite a big decision at the time.

"He's passionate about England and when it ended for him last time there were a lot of players disappointed about that.

"He's very clued up as a coach, wants to push his players and make sure they're always looking to improve. You can feed off his energy, he's always buzzing and thinking about how to help his players. It's an exciting opportunity to work with him. He's a great guy."

Broad will sit out of the limited-overs matches against Sri Lanka in May as he rests his injured knee.
