The England and Wales Cricket Board confirm the appointment of Paul Farbrace as assistant to Peter Moores.

Paul Farbrace has been confirmed as England's new assistant coach after quitting his role as head coach of Sri Lanka.

The 46-year-old has spoken of his excitement at having the opportunity to work alongside new head coach Peter Moores, who is set to begin his second spell in charge of the team.

"It's fantastic to be given the opportunity to work with your country's national team and an offer that I could not turn down," Farbrace revealed in a statement issued by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

"I am particularly relishing the chance to work more closely with Peter as we undertook the Level Four Coaching programme together and have known each other since we were both young wicketkeepers on the county circuit together."

England host Sri Lanka and India this summer.
